This week, Apple announced Apple TV+, a new streaming service coming from the tech giant this fall. While many details surrounding its debut remain under wraps, the Silicon Valley juggernaut was sure to highlight its star power during a presentation at Apple headquarters in Cupertio, CA Monday night.

The Verge reports Oprah Winfrey closed out the Apple new services presentation with the announcement of two new documentaries being brought to Apple TV+. Toxic Labor will tackle workplace harassment while a second multi-part series will focus on mental health. According to the media mogul, she’s partnering with Apple because “the Apple platform allows me to do what I do in a new way.”

Winfrey also has plans to develop, “the biggest, most vibrant, most stimulating book club on the planet… I want to literally convene a meeting of the minds connecting us through books.”
