Playing Behind the Scenes of Dr. Perry’s New TV Show

Oprah Winfrey's go-to education adviser is getting his own daytime TV show to help counsel people in crisis or facing big decisions. 

"Breakthrough With Dr. Steve Perry" is equal parts tears and laughter as his guests, who are regular, everyday people, get some tough love from the namesake host. 

"What makes TV matter is when it adds value to our lives," Perry said in a press release about the show. "There's nothing more valuable than learning how to arrive at a breakthrough, and I look forward to sharing that experience with viewers."

Inside Edition went behind the scenes of the new show, which premieres Monday on select stations.
