Apple has confirmed that its new talk show hosted by Oprah Winfrey will premiere this week.
Last year, Apple signed a multi-million dollar contract with the television legend, and following the launch of Oprah’s Book Club, the host will feature in the first episode of The Oprah Conversation on July 30.
From then on, new episodes will premiere every week.
The new talk show is being filmed remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic and will feature interviews with some of the world’s most “foremost newsmakers, thought leaders, and masters of their craft,” with the first episode featuring Ibram X. Kendi.
Kendi is the director of the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University.
In the second episode of the show, Oprah will speak to Emmanuel Acho, the activist and athlete, whilst a future episode will focus on Equal Justice Initiative CEO Bryan Stevenson.
Oprah has already featured in three Apple TV+ shows, including Oprah’s Book Club, Oprah Talks COVID-19, and an episode of “Dear…” This latest show is one of the “hard-hitters” to come from the partnership, following on from Oprah’s successful talk show in the same vein.
The first episode of The Oprah Conversation premieres on July 30 at 4:00 pm PT.
