MUMBAI: Talk show host Oprah Winfrey plans to enter into the reality space with two shows tentatively tilted Oprah Winfrey's The Big Give and Your Money or Your Life. This announcement was made jointly by Harpo Productions and Disney owned ABC Entertainment.

To be rolled out as eight-episode show, Oprah Winfrey's The Big Give will challenge 10 people to take the money and resources they are given and multiply them to come up with the most powerful, sensational, emotional and dramatic ways to give to others.

An official release stated that each week the group will face a "big catch" that will test their nerve, drive, ingenuity and passion. The stakes will get higher, with one person ultimately being chosen to have his/her wildest dream come true for making the biggest impact. The series will center on the drama, emotion and magic of making a difference in peoples' lives.

In addition, the two companies are also developing the primetime series Your Money or Your Life. Each week will feature families facing a life crisis. They will need to make drastic and immediate changes before they are consumed by disaster. In every episode, an expert action team will move in and viewers will watch a dramatic total money and life makeover.

"Less than 100 days since we launched our new television development group, we're delighted to be announcing our first two primetime series," said Harpo Productions president Tim Bennett.

"Oprah Winfrey getting into series TV is monumental. Our relationship with Harpo has been wonderful for us, and this latest partnership takes it to a phenomenal new level," said ABC Entertainment president Stephen McPherson. "These two shows are a perfect fit for our alternative brand with their focus on wish fulfillment and making lives better. I can't wait to get started."
