Oprah Win­frey is back with a new seven-part doc­u­men­tary se­ries in which she trav­els the world ex­plor­ing dif­fer­ent re­li­gions and the mean­ing of life. In The Seek­ers, episode one, she meets Cha Cha, 19, who’s lost her faith; Reshma Thakkar, an In­dian-Amer­i­can Hindu from Chicago who joins the world’s largest spir­i­tual gath­er­ing in In­dia; Men­del Hur­witz, 13, who’s preparing for his bar mitz­vah in Bu­dapest; and Terry Gan­dadila, an Aus­tralian Abo­rig­i­nal el­der who, as death ap­proaches, wants to share knowl­edge of his tribe with his grand­son. Win­frey doesn’t have quite the same clout she had as a daily talk show host, but she knows how to tell a story.
