A new series is in the works for television that’s based on some of the antics seen on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” The new show is “Heads Up!,” from DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production and Telepictures.
The half-hour game show will bow on HLN in the first quarter of 2016, the companies announced. Hosted by Loni Love, it will air Monday-Friday and has an order for 65 episodes.
The show is inspired by the popular game and app of the same name, which has been featured on DeGeneres’ daytime talk show.
“In the ‘Heads Up!’ TV show, contestants pair up with a celebrity and try to correctly identify as many cards as they can based on clues from their teammate in categories ranging from movies and songs to actions, accents, body parts and more. In ‘Heads Up!,’ (almost) nothing is off limits,” the companies said in their announcement.
DeGeneres quipped: “I’m so excited that ‘Heads Up!’ is going to be a game show. It’s so fun and addictive. I play it on my show all the time. I play it at home. I played it last night at Jennifer Aniston’s house. She wasn’t home, so please don’t print that part.”
