Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey are teaming up for “Little Big Shots,” a children’s comedy variety show, which has landed an eight-episode order from NBC.
Harvey will host the series, which showcases some of the world’s most talented kiddos — young musicians, dancers, singers and more — who engage in hilarious conversations and interviews with the emcee. The pint-sized contestants will “slay with their cuteness” and “wow with their accomplishments,” proving that talent is born, and not made.
The series, exec produced by DeGeneres and Harvey, hails from Warner Horizon Television, East 112th Street Productions and A Very Good Production. Jeff Kleeman and Gerald Washington will also serve as exec producers.
The project marks a continuation for DeGeneres producing with NBC. Her short-lived sitcom “One Big Happy,” on which she was an exec producer, was canceled on Friday in a slew of comedy cancellations at the network.
