London (ANI): Actress Jennifer Aniston is all set to return to TV alongside Oprah Winfrey. The former 'Friends' star will help present a late-night live talk show on the talk show queen's new channel OWN - Oprah Winfrey Network. OWN will be launched in America in the spring and in Britain by the end of next year.
Aniston, 40, who stars in the current hit film 'Love Happens', will also co-produce the series. Ever since Friends ended in 2004 Aniston has established herself as a Hollywood A-list leading lady in eight films, three of which have earned her 5million pounds.However, her TV return will earn her only a fraction of that, says a source.
"Her salary is yet to be determined. She is doing this for one reason only; she absolutely wants to do it," The Daily Express quoted the source as saying. And it wasn't Winfrey who lured Aniston into the project, but it was her friendship with Chelsea Handler, 34, an ex stand-up comic who has her own TV talk show, that prompted her to take it up.
An OWN source said: "Jen became fascinated with the format after spending time with Chelsea. When she saw Oprah she mentioned that it would be fun to do a chat show and Oprah seized the moment and suggested they front one together for her network."
The insider added that, to start, "she and Oprah are thinking in terms of a once a week show."
