NEW YORK – HBO and Oprah Winfrey's production company say they have reached an exclusive three-year deal to develop movies and miniseries.
Winfrey's company, Harpo Films, had been working with ABC for 15 years.
Kate Forte, head of Harpo Films, says she expects to make a more eclectic mix of programming than was featured on ABC, which focused on movies positive in tone. She said HBO was a better fit, although she wouldn't detail any of the material she has in mind.
It hasn't been discussed whether Winfrey would act in any of the projects.
