Collie B. Witt, Co-Producer
Favorite job: Well I have to say, even though I’ve only been working here on Oprah: Where Are They Now? for a little over a month, I’m loving it. That said, I did work at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, many summers in my teens as a Disney character and dressing up as Eeyore is a close second.
Favorite Oprah: Where Are They Now? guest: I have favorites for every episode I get to work on. I really like the piece on the Herrin twins, formerly conjoined. The pop culture junkie in me is excited about working on the Molly Ringwald episode. Ask me again next season, as I imagine this answer will be forever changing...
Dream Oprah: Where Are They Now? guest: Steven Spielberg, I know I'm dreaming big here but dreaming big is just one of the many things I’ve learned from Spielberg and his films.
Where was I when The Oprah Winfrey Show launched in 1986? The show launched just two days after my 10th birthday. My family had just moved from a small farming town in southern Illinois to a growing suburb in central Florida.
Fun fact: I have seen every episode of Law & Order, all 20 seasons! I’m talking the original series, not the spin-offs. I can recite the opening line upon request.
Celebrity crush: It has changed over the decades but goes something like this...in the 1980s it was Michael J. Fox, or more specifically, Alex P. Keaton. (I wore sweater vest for a couple years because of this man). In the late 1990s, it was Joshua Jackson. It may have been Dawson's creek, but it was Pacey who held the key to my heart. In the 2000s, I have been bouncing back and forth between Patrick Wilson and Dan Abrams. Please don't make me choose.
