Oprah goes head-to-head with 'The View'

Taps Mark Burnett to produce panel show on OWN

Mark Burnett will produce a daily panel talk show for OWN, the cable network joint venture of Oprah Winfrey and Discovery Communications set to launch in January, a network spokesman confirms to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show is in very early development and the format may change.

The show is targeted for daytime and will feature multiple hosts in the vein of "The View," the  New York Post first reported Tuesday, citing sources.

Burnett and OWN previously announced that Burnett is producing "Your Own Show: Oprah's Search for the Next TV Star" for the new network.
