Oprah Winfrey and Apple are ending their content contract.
Winfrey and the streamer entered into a “multi-year content partnership” in January 2018, but sources confirmed their deal was ending.
It comes two days after the premiere of Sidney, the Winfrey-exec produced documentary about Sidney Poitier, on the service.
Although Winfrey and the tech giant are ending their official partnership – without renewing the deal – sources suggest they will continue to work together on a project-by-project basis.
While Winfrey was doing The Oprah Conversations and special mental health The me you can’t see for Apple TV+, as well as Oprah Book Club, which is available through Apple Books, it’s clear that the deal hasn’t produced a huge amount of content.
Winfrey also had big plans such as Oprah with Meghan and Harry and Adele one night onlywhich she produced via Harpo and interviewed the British popstar, on CBS in recent years.
Last year, Deadline revealed that Winfrey herself was getting the biographical documentary treatment with a two-part documentary feature by Kevin Macdonald. It is unclear if this project is still ongoing.
Puck first revealed the end of the deal.
