Ferguson will be the subject of a six-part doc, “Finding Sarah,” airing on OWN in the first quarter of 2011.
“(Ferguson) will share with our viewers her personal struggle to rebuild her life,” OWN chief creative officer Lisa Erspamer said. “With the help of experts Dr. Phil McGraw, Suze Orman, Martha Beck and others, the Duchess will open up about her recent public troubles and explore her lifelong battles with weight, relationships and finances. She will look to put the past behind her and move forward to a positive future.
In short, it’s self-help on the fly, under TV’s watchful eye.
““I’m doing this because I need to heal my mind, body and spirit,” Ferguson said. “After 22 years of raising my two amazing daughters, it’s time for me to mother myself. My hope is that sharing my journey will help someone else.”
Ferguson founded the charity Children in Crisis and has also published several books. But the Telegraph in London has reported that Ferguson has been having to address personal debt in the millions of pounds.
