Z Living has acquired the rights to previous seasons of The Dr. Oz Show, the health entertainment cable network said Thursday (July 20).
Multiple seasons of the talk show series -- hosted by health expert/author Dr. Mehmet Oz -- will launch on Z Living beginning Labor Day (Sept. 4) with an eight-hour marathon before settling in on its weekday 4 to 6 pm timeslot, said network officials.
The Dr. Oz Show is produced by Harpo Productions and distributed by Sony Pictures Television. The series is executive produced by Amy Chiaro and co-executive produced by Stacy Rader and Laurie Rich.
“Z Living has made record-breaking strides in original programming this year, while concurrently amping up our roster of prestigious health entertainment content from many of the industry’s top producers,” said Z Living General Manager Rafe Oller in a statement. “We’re honored to have ‘Dr. Oz’ on our air, and feel the fit and draw for our audience could not be more ideal.”
