America’s favorite home design couple, Chip and Joanna Gaines, sit down with Oprah to discuss the launch of The Magnolia Network on discovery+. They reveal that times were tough in the beginning and that they needed a break for one year to regroup.
Longtime fans know that the road has been a steady build for Chip and Joanna Gaines, seen in our TV Shows Ace previews below with Oprah Winfrey to talk about the launch of The Magnolia Network on discovery+, their marriage, life on the farm, and raising five children.
The event will stream this Saturday, March 13 on discovery+. The interview will also be available on Super Soul podcast beginning Wednesday, March 17.
What is the vision and intention behind the network?
Chip Gaines tells Oprah why they went for the big career move.
He said: “With every show that’s on the network, when we are finished watching it, our hope is that when others are finished watching it that they say what’s untapped in my life? What fear is keeping me from that…whether it’s small or big. It is that idea of, ‘hey they have they’ve inspired me to move forward with this,’ and I think that’s our hope is that when people watch these stories that they, in some way, can relate to the talent’s vulnerability when you put yourself out there… and you’re vulnerable I think.”
He added: “It opens up the door for other people to do the same, there’s a freedom in that so those two things
unbeknownst to us because we didn’t go after these units these shows with this thought in mind. But as they started developing and we started realizing there was a common denominator in all the shows… it was vulnerability and risk. I mean these people were taking these life-worthy risks…we just realized that we were really drawn to those two components and the more different, the better.”
