Your OWN Show is an American reality competition television series created by Oprah Winfrey and executive produced by Mark Burnett which features 10 prospective television hosts competing to earn their own television show on the OWN network, as well as a cash prize and a new car.
The series aired in the USA on the OWN network from 7 January to 25 February, 2011. There are eight hour-long episodes in one season.
Your OWN Show premiered in South Africa on DStv's Mzansi Magic channel on Wednesday 4 April 2012, at 19h00. New episodes broadcast weekly.
Ten contestants with determination, passion and drive were plucked from obscurity from thousands of auditions to compete to get their own TV show on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network.
Hosts Nancy O'Dell and Carson Kressley guide the hopefuls through intense challenges designed to see if they have what it takes to have their own show.
In each episode, the contestants are mentored by A-list hosts. Dr. Phil, Suze Orman, Gayle King and more will make appearances on the series, bestow knowledge to the contestants and judge the episodes.
Challenges will range from booking interviews and researching story ideas to successfully completing a pilot presentation. The winner will get his or her very own show, as well as $100,000 and a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox.
The series is executive produced by Mark Burnett.
