Apple TV+ has ordered an Oprah Winfrey biographical documentary for its streaming platform. Per Deadline, the two-part series “will chronicle 25 years of American history through the lens of one show and one woman who rose from humble roots to become a globally famous talk show host, producer, actress, and philanthropist.”
Signed on to make the documentary will be Academy Award-winner Kevin MacDonald and Emmy-nominated producer Lisa Erspamer. The pair previously made the Whitney Houston documentary titled Whitney. Erspamer also produced The Oprah Winfrey Show.
There is no word yet on when the biopic will air.
