For the most part, it'll be a family affair at Oprah's soon-to-launch cable channel.

OWN, aka the Oprah Winfrey Network, announced this morning that it has recruited Naomi and Wynonna JuddRyan and Tatum O'Neal and style maven Carson Kressley (formerly of Bravo's Queer Eye) to headline three new one-hour series that will anchor the channel's inaugural lineup when it premieres exactly one year from now on Nov. 1, 2011.

What we really want to know is: do any of them have trainwreck potential?

The Judds will follow the lives of the Grammy-winning mother and daughter country legends as they get ready to mount their first tour together in 10 years and explores their complex relationship together—or as Wynona puts it, "the good, the bad and the ugly."

"After 25 years of touring, recording and the singing the music we love, we are beyond excited to begin this new adventure together and share it with the fans. To have this opportunity is amazing and the OWN Network is the perfect home for us," they said.

Carson-Nation will find the outspoken Kressley leaving the big city for adventures in small-town America, where he aims to transform people's closets and self-confidence.

"Oprah's new network, makeovers, and me? Sounds like a perfect combination!" he quipped.

As for Hollywood's most dysfunctional father-daughter tandem, Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals will chronicle the actors as they try to patch up a relationship that's been estranged for more than 25 years and plagued by drug addictions and various arrests.

"We've decided at long last to reconcile our relationship and try to find the peace that all fathers and daughters strive for. We hope viewers connect to our desire to bring our family back together," said Tatum.

"It's never too late to get it right, there's always hope," added Ryan.

No doubt Oprah would approve.
