Rosie O’Donnell is returning to daytime TV — and on Oprah Winfrey’s network.
The Emmy-winning O’Donnell will launch a new chat show on Winfrey’s upcoming OWN cable network.
“Rosie is an undeniable talent who has captivated TV audiences for nearly 20 years,” said Oprah Winfrey in a statement. “She’s a true original, who brings her authentic voice, dynamic energy and pure passion to everything she does.”
“It’s an honor and a privilege to work with Oprah Winfrey on her network,” added Rosie O’Donnell. “I’m excited to be back on daytime television.”
The hour-long New York-based show is described “a fun, uplifting show with Ms. O’Donnell’s playful and energetic style.” The series will be produced by Donnell, and brought to OWN by longtime Warner Bros. syndication veterans Dick Robertson and Scott Carlin.
