Primetime Special Featuring Musical Icon Celine Dion to Air on OWN on October 1
“Celine is not only a dynamic performer, but she’s also an incredibly dedicated mother and wife,” said Lisa Erspamer, executive vice president, production and development, OWN. “This special is an inside look at her life and how she balances her amazing career with being a mom."
"I'm very excited about our new show and so happy to be able to work with Oprah in the early stages of her new network," said Celine. "What she's doing is amazing, and I'm honored to be a small part of it."
Celine Dion is used to juggling roles as mother, wife and musical icon. Now she adds another to the list -- headliner at Caesars Palace. In this 90-minute primetime special, viewers are given an unprecedented look at the day-to-day balancing act of the legendary artist as she tends to newborn twins, helps her eldest son with his homework and spends quality time with her longtime husband, Rene, all the while working to launch her spectacular Las Vegas extravaganza, "Celine."
The special is produced by Productions J and executive produced by Julie Snyder and Marianik Giffard.
