ABC ‘Primetime Nightline’ summer news magazine series Beyond Belief (pictured) is to air on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network in expanded form, starting later this month.

Hosted by author and army combat veteran Wes Moore, the hour-long show focuses on “stories of wonder, mysteries and miracles that delve into the unknown and unexplained,” such as the search for the Virgin Mary, the fight to save a dying whale caught in a net, and a woman with no arms who flies a plane.

The 13 episodes will feature extended content not featured during the original run. ABC News journalists Elizabeth Vargas, Bob Woodruff, Jay Schadler, Bill Weir and JuJu Chang also appear in the series.

Beyond Belief on OWN will premiere on January 24 at 10 p.m. EST.
