Sneak Peek: OWN Original Documentaries
Beginning this spring, OWN will premiere a groundbreaking original documentary each month.
Julia Roberts
For the Matriarch Who Doesn't Take Any Guff: Extraordinary Moms

Executive-produced and presented by Julia Roberts, Extraordinary Moms profiles a handful of remarkable women who are pressuring politicians and standing up to unethical corporations—while still attending soccer games, reading bedtime stories, and checking the closet for monsters.
Forest Whitaker
For Lovers of Redemption: One Last Shot

At Angola prison in Louisiana, the average sentence is more than 90 years; 85 percent of its hardened criminals will die within its walls. One Last Shot, narrated and executive-produced by Forest Whitaker, offers a glimpse of an innovative hospice program that allows convicts to care for dying inmates—an experience that reconnects them to their humanity.
Mariel Hemingway
For Everyone With A Complicated Family History: the untitled Mariel Hemingway documentary

Ernest Hemingway's legacy is one of literary virtuosity but also inner torment: Over four generations, seven members of the Hemingway family have taken their own lives. In this documentary, the author's granddaughter Mariel Hemingway explores her family's tragic past, describes her own battle with depression, revisits the suicide of her sister Margaux, and embarks upon a journey to reconnect with her surviving sister, Joan "Muffet" Hemingway, who has lived in and out of mental institutions since the age of 16.
Gabriel Byrne
For Anyone Who Believes Every Voice Deserves to be Heard: Tent City U.S.A.

After a devastating flood hit Nashville last May, a thriving, self-governed community of nearly 100 homeless people was forced to evacuate its encampment beneath a downtown bridge. Executive-produced by Gabriel Byrne, Tent City U.S.A. follows several of the camp's residents as they vie for a position on Nashville's Homeless Commission council and work to keep their one-of-a-kind community together.
