A total of 15 new series have been announced for Winfrey's channel 'OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network', which will launch on January 1, 2011.

One of the five new shows announced today is 'Oprah's Next Chapter', in which Winfrey will have "riveting conversations with the people we all want to hear from, in some very unexpected places".

"Oprah's getting untethered from the chairs, opening up her world and taking you with her. From the Taj Mahal to her beloved oak tree, the Great Wall to her own teahouse, it is a whole new kind of Oprah show," OWN chief executive officer Christina Norman said in a statement.

The show, an hour long regular series, would be produced by Harpo Studios. While scheduling and details for the new prime-time series are yet to be finalised, the show is expected to air two to three times a week when it debuts later next year.

Winfrey, 55, would interview a range of people from celebrities to politicians to newsmakers in other countries.

The other new shows are 'Visionaries: Inside the Creative Mind', 'Your Own Show: Oprah's search for the next TV Star', 'Gayle King Live!' and 'Why Not? With Shania Twain'.

"My vision for OWN is to create a network that inspires our viewers and makes them want to be who they are on their best day," Winfrey said.
