Making Oprah

The inside story of how Oprah Winfrey became a cultural icon.

Oprah Winfrey tells the behind-the-scenes story of her iconic TV talk show, along with producers, staffers, TV executives, and ratings rival Phil Donahue. The three-part series chronicles the show’s scrappy roots in Chicago, its rise to daytime dominance, and the powerful sway Winfrey came to have in American life.

Making Oprah is hosted by Jenn White and produced by Colin McNulty.
