Cameras Follow the Duchess' Mind/Body/Spirit Transformation, Aided by Oprah's Experts --- Suze Orman and Dr. Phil McGraw

Los Angeles, CA - OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced today that the much-anticipated docu-series "Finding Sarah" will premiere Sunday, June 12, from 9-10 p.m. ET/PT. After decades under the harsh glare of the media spotlight, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, is undertaking her toughest challenge yet, rebuilding her life and career. Candid and unprecedented, the new six-episode series follows the Duchess' emotional struggle to find herself and happiness.

In "Finding Sarah," the Duchess bravely shares her personal story with viewers. Following a major scandal last year, the Duchess hit rock bottom. Feeling inspired after a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Duchess decides she must confront her past and take positive steps to change her life.

To guide her through the ultimate mind/body makeover, the Duchess seeks the help of Oprah's experts, Dr. Phil and Suze Orman, as well as other extraordinary individuals. Together they help her address tough personal issues, ranging from finances and self-esteem to physical fitness.

In the premiere of "Finding Sarah," Dr. Phil delves into the Duchess' past, helping her realize how the traumas of her childhood continue to impact her and challenging her to acknowledge that she is "emotionally bankrupt." Back in England, facing financial bankruptcy and feeling defeated, the Duchess turns to money-guru Suze Orman, who offers some tough-love advice on achieving financial independence.

Later in the series, the Duchess' quest for answers leads her to several unique "healers" with some unconventional methods. In the Arizona desert, a Shaman advises Sarah on how to get through the pain of her mother's abandonment; life coach Martha Beck, known for helping people find their true selves, helps the Duchess to trust her own instincts; and horse whisperer Koelle Simpson sets up an exercise with a horse in which the Duchess learns about overcoming fear. After each experience, the Duchess walks away feeling more and more empowered.

Along with mental and spiritual challenges, come physical challenges for the Duchess. Desperate to get into shape, Sarah agrees to a 26-mile trek through Canada's Arctic and embarks on an intense training program with a world-class trainer. At first she is steadfast in her efforts, but some unexpected news threatens to bring back her self-destructive behavior.

As the series progresses, it becomes evident that success for the Duchess can only come from within as she comes to terms with past missteps, tackles major life changes and rebuilds her self-esteem. The Duchess' journey is unique to her, but viewers will learn with her as she struggles with relatable issues like self-worth, finances and health. By sharing her story, the Duchess hopes not only to improve herself, but also to inspire others to take the first steps towards leading a better life.

"Finding Sarah" is produced for OWN by World of Wonder Productions. Sarah Ferguson, Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato and Tom Campbell are executive producers, joined by co-executive producer/director, Elise Duran.
