The actress launched her Facebook Watch series in 2018 where she stars alongside her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones and Willow Smith as well as a host of special guests.

And she's said that it's thanks to her mentor Oprah Winfrey that she was able to get the show up and running.

Posting a picture of herself and Oprah during a red carpet event on her Instagram, Jada says Oprah is the only reason the show could even be imagined.
