Will Packer Producing Two New Shows for The OWN Network

Industry giant Will Packer just inked a deal with Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network to executive produce not one, but two new series for the station.

Variety reports the first of these series will be Ambitious, a soap-opera style drama produced by Will Packer Media in association with Lionsgate division Debmar-Mercury. The second, Ready for Love, is an unscripted dating series which begins production in Atlanta this spring.

“Will is a creative powerhouse who knows what audiences want,” said Erik Logan, president of OWN. “He has an insightful approach to relationships and a keen eye for great storytelling that resonates with viewers across the board. We can’t wait to bring these two new series to our viewers.”

“Partnering with OWN to bring Ambitions and Ready to Love to their fast-growing lineup of critically acclaimed series is a win-win scenario,” said Packer.  “OWN has been on an incredible streak with its recent slate, and we’re looking forward to extending the network’s prime-time success with these new shows created specifically with the OWN audience in mind.”
