She might be having a tough time getting people to tune in to OWN, but Oprah Winfrey won’t go down without a fight. The question? Will these new series do the trick?

Winfrey’s OWN network announced today that it has picked up four new original primetime series.

The new series include Elura and Michele Take Staten Island (about two former prosecutors/current friends who “tell it like it is”), Iyanla Fix My Life (centered around author Iyanla Vanzant’s self-help advice), Married to the Army: Alaska (unscripted Army Wives in the frontier), and Six Little McGhees (parents vs. six babies).

The network also announced that TV producer Barry Poznick (Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?) and comedienne Kim Coles will helm the network’s previously announced new game show titled Are You Normal, America?, a spin off a segment that used to be featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

In addition, Oprah’s Master Class and Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s have been picked up for additional episodes, the network said.
