PRECIOUS FINDS HOME AT OWN
The Oprah Winfrey Network has acquired the TV rights to the film Precious from Lionsgate.
The film’s executive producers included Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry, so getting the deal done at OWN was probably not too tough.
Precious, which stars Gabourey Sidibe, Mo’Nique, Paula Patton and Mariah Carey, is up for six Oscars at next Sunday’s Academy Awards, and will begin it’s run on OWN starting in summer 2012. —Jamal Munnerlyn
