Oprah Winfrey and Jennifer Hudson will sit down for an exclusive intimate interview at her home in Chicago for “Oprah’s Next Chapter.”
OWN confirmed the news late Wednesday, slating the Oscar, Grammy, Golden Globe and NAACP Image Award winner for an episode to air in September.
Hudson’s forthcoming interview is another big break for Oprah’s series, which saw strong ratings last week due to an interview with Rihanna.
With a number of issues to discuss, including becoming a mother and author, this will be Hudson’s first major interview with Winfrey since William Balfour was convicted. Hudson could also discuss her dramatic weight loss, upcoming wedding, and forthcoming roles in efforts like “Smash.”
“Oprah’s Next Chapter,” featuring Jennifer Hudson, is due to air Sunday, September 9 at 9 p.m. on OWN.
