Under the deal, Winfrey and Apple will create programs that will be released as part of Apple's original content lineup.
The deal has been described as a "multiyear" one, although the exact number of years is unknown.
This is also the latest addition to Winfrey's media empire. In addition, she's still under contract with OWN until 2025, which means that (in some shape or form), Oprah will be influencing Americans for many years to come. Sources tell Variety that Apple's deal with Winfrey does not conflict with the Discovery agreement.
I hear her OWN exclusivity is for ad-supported cable only, and she is allowed to produce and appear on-camera on other platforms on a limited basis.
Antoine Griezmann confirms his post-World Cup future
Griezmann made the announcement just a couple of days before the World Cup in a video released by Movistar . However, Griezmann now appears to be ready to inform the world.
Born into poverty, she is now one of the world's wealthiest women and been nominated for two Academy Awards. She also produced Oscar-winning features such as Selma - which she also starred in - through her Harpo banner.
Even before the Oprah deal, Apple has a robust slate of originals prepared to launch.
Other projects Apple has announced include a remake of Steven Spielberg's 1980s science fiction anthology series "Amazing Stories", based on Isaac Asimov's influential "Foundation" science fiction novels, and a drama from "La La Land" movie director Damian Chazelle. Perhaps most famously, Netflix signed both Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes to deals valued at over nine figures each.
It's not just Hollywood studios fighting for top talent anymore.
