The Hollywood Reporter brings us news of Oprah Winfrey’s latest television venture–and it’s not for her gradually improving cable network OWN. Her Harpo Films banner is producing an untitled drama about a black college president who attracts controversy on a national level.

As she prepares to work with a new network entirely, Ms. Winfrey has seen her network grow a bit as she’s returned to interviewing celebrities on the Oprah’s Next Chapter series. And she’s been frank about the growing pains, recently telling Harper’s Bazaar that she reads responses to her Sunday-morning series on the network, “And when I say I read your Facebook response, I can because there are 28 of them.”
