Daytime Talk Host Ventures Into Cable THR

Ellen DeGeneres has a new project in the works for cable. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the daytime TV fixture is working on a design competition show that will debut on HGTV in 2015.

The six-episode show, “Ellen’s Design Challenge,” marks DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production’s first venture into cable, the story reports. The series will feature six competitors as they take on challenges involving designing and building furniture within 24 hours.

"I'm so excited about this show because I love finding really special pieces of furniture," DeGeneres said. "One time I found a beautiful one-of-a-kind armoire that spoke to me in a way I'd never experienced. It turned out there was a drifter living inside of it, but that's a story for another time."
