via press release:



Los Angeles – On the heels of yesterday’s news of the arrival of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s baby boy, OWN will air a 90-minute special titled “William, Kate and the Royal Baby” on Thursday, July 25 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.  The special will re-air Thursday, July 25 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT and Friday, July 26 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.


From the moment it all began, to their "happy every after," the world has been fixated on the fairytale of William and Kate.  In addition to the couple’s enchanting love story, this special also gives viewers a look at what lies ahead for the newest member of the world’s oldest monarchy, how the new parents will survive the pressures of being modern royals and the big roles that family members will play in the newborn’s life.  The special is distributed by Zodiak Rights and co-produced by Marathon, part of the Zodiak Media Group and CB Productions.

    Will OWN be paying the couple just like Angelina Jolie sold her baby’s pic for 15 million? I think that’s fair as is also donating a percentage of the proceeds to their most needed charities. If OWN is profiting 100% of this, I’m not watching :-) OW is a billionaire …
