Oprah Finds New Ways to Give Away Cash
— Fri, Dec 15, 2006 —

Oprah is moving out of daytime. Nah, she's not giving up her lucrative gabfest, but she's launching two additional efforts: reality TV shows. The new projects have already found a buyer in ABC, and Oprah plans to appear in at least one of the shows, though hosting duties may fall on someone else.

First project, dubbed "Oprah Winfrey's The Big Give," has an eight-episode order from ABC. Skein follows a group of 10 people who will be handed money and resources -- and then challenged to find dramatic and emotional ways to use the coin to help others.

Contestant field will be winnowed down each week, with the winner getting his or her wildest wish granted.

ABC also is teaming with Harpo on the tentatively titled "Your Money or Your Life." Each self-contained episode will focus on a family facing a crisis.

An "action team" will move in and give the family a total money and life makeover.

Because if there's a single way Oprah knows how to attract viewership and solve the average American's problems, it's by giving away hoards of cash.
