More of Ellen DeGeneres on TV? Yes, please.
NBC has ordered six episodes of a new game show from the funny "Ellen DeGeneres Show" host, Variety reports. Called "Ellen's Game of Games," it's based on the crazy activities she likes to do with guests. Apparently, we can expect to see her bring out favorite games like "What's in the Box?" and "Know or Go?"
DeGeneres has been hosting her daytime talk show on the network since 2003, plus starring in hit films like "Finding Dory." The new hour-long, primetime series will be a new challenge for her, but it sounds like one she's excited about. She promised that she's "pulling out all the stops," and then joked that the show will be like "a combination of 'American Ninja Warrior,' 'RuPaul's Drag Race,' and a water park."
Whatever DeGeneres has up her sleeve, it's bound to be good, and the network guaranteed as much.
"She is among the very best at engaging with her devoted audience and we are all in for a treat when her antics hit primetime," said Paul Telegdy, NBC alternative and reality group president, according to Variety.
A premiere date has yet to be announced, but we're already excited.
