OWN, the cable channel owned by Oprah Winfrey and Discovery Communications, has ordered “Beyond Belief” to series. “Beyond Belief” started as a series of primetime “Nightline” specials last year.
The hour-long series will debut Tuesday, January 24 at 10 PM, and will be hosted by author Wes Moore. Moore will be joined by ABC News correspondents Elizabeth Vargas, Bob Woodruff, Jay Schadler, Bill Weir and JuJu Chang in presenting the stories, which focus on amazing and unusual people and events.
A spokesperson for OWN says that the series will combine new segments, as well as re-purposed segments from the “Beyond Belief” series on ABC.
