Attention Opraholics, there’s a new mama in the nighttime tubes, and she is Oprah, the Grand Imperial Poobah, originator of all that is saintly and good and warm and fuzzy, as her new show Oprah’s Big Give is scheduled to hit the airwaves March 2.
The show has also assembled its panel of judges. Chef-author-philanthropist Jamie Oliver, NFL star Tony Gonzalez and Malaak Compton-Rock — the wife of comedian Chris Rock and founder of the the charity styleWORKS — will determine who goes home each week.
Over the course of the “Big Give,” 10 people (whose identities will be revealed closer to the premiere date) will compete to see who can mount the most creative and effective efforts to help people in need. Each challenge will take place in a different city.
Winfrey, who’s an executive producer of the show, will make appearances throughout its run and enlist some of her celebrity pals to appear as well. The winner will receive an undisclosed “major prize” for his or her efforts.[ZAP News]
