OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network is expanding its Friday night lineup with the upcoming Belle Collective.

The women “represent Mississippi’s finest Black female entrepreneurs, determined to break ceilings – glass and otherwise – while shredding long-held stereotypes of the South,” the network said Wednesday in a press release.
