Oprah Winfrey has interviewed Idris Elba and his wife Sabrina Dhowre-Elba about living with coronavirus for her new Apple TV+ series Oprah Talks COVID-19.

In the first episode, Winfrey does a FaceTime chat with the Luther star and Dhowre, who have both been in quarantine since Elba tested positive for coronavirus. Dhowre reveals she also tested positive for COVID-19 during the interview.

Winfrey announced details of the show Saturday night on Instagram, saying she launched it to add perspective to the conversation surrounding the pandemic.

“Like millions of people all over the world, I’ve been staying safer at home for over a week now,” she said. “I know a lot of people are feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and uncertain. Because of that, I wanted to offer some hope and gather thought leaders and people going through it to add some perspective.”

Throughout the series, Winfrey will continue to have remote conversations with experts and people facing challenges caused by the pandemic.

Oprah Talks COVID-19 is now streaming on Apple TV+, with or without a subscription. The first episode can be viewed at apple.co/-oprahtalks. New episodes will roll out weekly, and will continue to be free to viewers around the world.
