Oprah has two new projects in the works. Her latest venture: feel good reality TV. The shows are titled “Oprah Winfrey’s Big Give” and “Your Money or Your Life” and will be produced by Harpo and ABC.
“Oprah Winfrey’s Big Give” is all about charity. The shows 10 participants are given money (and resources) which they have to increase. They have to be creative and ingenuous in order to mulitply the amount they have. The amount that they raise is given to others. As with most reality shows, one contestant is elminated each week. The winner gets his or her wildest dream granted.
“Your Money or Your Life” on the other hand features family in crisis. A team of experts will be coming in to help each family as they try to change in order to avert disaster; that in itself is already a gift to the family.
The point of these reality TV shows is changing lives for the better and making wishes come true. Oprah is just opening up more shows that will hopefully help people and still make great TV. There is word yet on whether Oprah will do the actual hosting for either show.
