This is a big eating-disorders news day.
Two major celebrities have announced plans for major projects involving eating disorders -- and one of those celebrities is Oprah Winfrey.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Winfrey's cable network, OWN, will screen a series titled Inside Rehab, set within an eating-disorders treatment facility:
"The eight-episode series will document a group of patients as they undergo a 42-day recovery program. The announcement comes a day after E! announced an eating-disorder miniseries, What's Eating You?, that will air this fall and tackle common as well as bizarre eating problems."
Meanwhile, Minnesota Senator Al Franken, along with co-sponsors Sen. Amy Klobuchar (also of Minnesota), and Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa, have introduced the Federal Response to Eliminate Eating Disorders (FREED) Act.
