The two biggest "O"s in daytime are joining forces. Rosie O'Donnell is the latest star tapped by Oprah Winfrey's upcoming OWN network. As a part of the deal, O'Donnell gets a new daytime talk show, debuting sometime in 2011.

In a statement released by the network, Oprah has this to say about her new employee: "Rosie is an undeniable talent who has captivated TV audiences for nearly 20 years... She's a true original, who brings her authentic voice, dynamic energy and pure passion to everything she does."

And Rosie throws the love right back at her. "It's an honor and a privilege to work with Oprah Winfrey on her network," says O'Donnell. "I'm excited to be back on daytime television."

OWN chief executive officer Christina Norman announced that the New York-based series will also be produced by O'Donnell, carrying on the trademark style from the days of "The Rosie O'Donnell Show."
