OPRAH WINFREY INTERVIEWS RUSSELL BRAND FOR IN-DEPTH LOOK AT HEROIN ADDICTION TO AIR THIS SUNDAY, MARCH 9 ON OWN

Episode Marks Series Debut of "Oprah Prime" Airing Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT

Los Angeles - Oprah Winfrey delves into the deep impact of drug addiction with an intimate one-on-one conversation with Russell Brand who describes his experience as a recovering addict, in an all new episode airing on "Oprah Prime" this Sunday, March 9 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. This episode marks the series name change for "Oprah's Next Chapter."

"When 'Oprah's Next Chapter' launched two years ago, it gave Oprah the platform to explore the world in a fresh and meaningful way," said Sheri Salata, president, OWN. "As the show has evolved into more topical conversations with newsmakers and celebrities, 'Oprah Prime' provides a wider lens for Oprah to intimately explore topics that matter and the public figures who are making a difference, as only she can."

This Sunday, during Oprah's exclusive television interview with Russell Brand, he shares his personal thoughts on addiction, his hope for a more compassionate perception of those struggling with drug addiction, and how the recent passing of Philip Seymour Hoffman has caused him to reflect on his own sobriety. Oprah also uncovers the startling personal stories of a mom of two and a former college athlete who both say they began using heroin following an addiction to prescription pills. They each share the devastating effects of drugs on themselves as well as their family and friends.

"Oprah Prime" will take an in-depth look at some of the most important issues facing us today, as well as headline-making current events through compelling interviews and thoughtful discussions with newsmakers, celebrities, luminaries, and real-life families. The series is produced by Harpo Studios. Executive produced by Andrea Wishom and Tara Montgomery. Viewers can join the conversation on Twitter using #OprahPrime.
