Follow Oprah Behind The Scenes For Her First Year as CEO of OWN

Los Angeles - OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced today the premiere of a two-part original primetime special event "Oprah Builds a Network" - a candid look at Oprah's first year as CEO of OWN - airing Sunday, July 8 and Sunday, July 15 from 9-10 p.m. ET/PT both nights.

Executive producer is Erica Forstadt.
