HARPO PRODUCTIONS, KING WORLD AND PARAMOUNT HOME ENTERTAINMENT PRESENT THE FIRST-EVER RETROSPECTIVE OF A TELEVISION PHENOMENON: THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW: 20TH ANNIVERSARY DVD COLLECTION DEBUTS IN NOVEMBER 2005

All Harpo Proceeds Benefit Oprah�s Angel Network

CHICAGO, IL and HOLLYWOOD, CA, Thursday, July 28, 2005 � Harpo Productions, Inc., King World and Paramount Home Entertainment have announced a deal to create and distribute an exclusive compilation of highlights and episodes from one of the most influential programs of the past two decades with The Oprah Winfrey Show: 20th Anniversary DVD Collection. The multiple disc DVD set, which will be distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment and debut for the 2005 holiday season, will pay tribute to the many moments that have made Oprah Winfrey one of the most respected and admired public figures today.

The Oprah Winfrey Show: 20th Anniversary DVD Collection will feature highlights from two decades of "Oprah" - the laughter and tears, the best surprises, the wildest dreams, the stars, and all the unforgettable interviews with people who have touched our hearts over the years. For the first time, Oprah will revisit the most moving and memorable moments, from her earliest days of broadcasting until now, for this once-in-a-lifetime DVD Collection. She�ll share what she was thinking and how she felt at the time these magic moments happened. Plus, she�ll reveal bonus material that includes exclusive behind-the-scenes footage at Harpo Studios.

Harpo�s proceeds from the sale of the DVD Collection will benefit Oprah�s Angel Network, a public charity established in 1998 to encourage people around the world to make a difference in the lives of others. To date, Oprah�s Angel Network has raised more than $30 million, 100-percent of which goes to nonprofit organizations that share the Angel Network mission.

�Every show you'll see here holds such profound meaning for me,� said Oprah. �I appreciate every hour our viewers spent watching us grow forward and now, through this DVD Collection, I can give back to the world by using its proceeds and the next 20 seasons of my life for what I know is my true calling � to be of service to women, children and families in need around the world." Seen by an estimated 30 million viewers a week in the U.S. alone*, The Oprah Winfrey Show, distributed by King World, has remained the #1 talk show for 19 consecutive seasons**. With unprecedented fan recognition, Oprah has created an unparalleled connection with people around the world.

Ellen Rakieten, Executive Producer of The Oprah Winfrey Show, stated, �We�re proud to share a piece of our television history with our loyal viewers, who�ve defined our tremendous success over the years. We couldn't have done it without them.�

�Oprah�s DVD will become an instant classic and a collector�s item,� declared King World CEO Roger King. �This is a great way to celebrate The Oprah Winfrey Show�s first 20 seasons and to share some of the television history it has made.�

�We are thrilled to work with Harpo Productions to bring one of the most successful television shows in history to DVD,� said Thomas Lesinski, President, Paramount Pictures Worldwide Home Entertainment. �This DVD collection is a tribute to the incredible connection that Oprah has established with her audience around the world."
