OWN: the Oprah Winfrey Network has signed on for six 60-minute episodes of Secret Talent Scout, a format that sends an undercover talent scout out into the streets of America to find raw, undiscovered talent.

In each episode a different scout will be on the hunt for talent, giving three people per week a chance to be in the spotlight. There will be no studio, no voting and no eliminations.

Zodiak Rights own worldwide distribution rights to Secret Talent Scout and will be launching the show and the format at MIPCOM. Zodiak USA will produce the series for OWN, with Natalka Znak and Claire O’Donohoe serving as exec producers for the prodco and Michael Shevloff exec producing as well.
