OWN announces two new original series
For the few growing weary of the “Mystery Diagnosis” mini-marathon every Tuesday night on the OWN network, there is relief in the near future.
A month after launching, OWN announced Monday the premiere dates of two new original series: “Searching For …” will premiere on Feb. 14 and “Breaking Down the Bars” will premiere Feb. 15.
“Searching For …” follows professional investigative genealogist Pam Slaton as she helps clients find lost loved ones. “Breaking Down the Bars” tracks the transformation of a group of female prisoners during their stay at the Rockville Correctional Facility in Indiana.
They join the already scheduled premieres of “Our America with Lisa Ling” and the acquired hidden-camera series “What Would You Do? OWN Edition," both set to make their debut Feb. 15.
Not to worry, “Mystery Diagnosis” fans. You can still get your fill of obscure ailments on Wednesday nights.
