Two of the biggest names in daytime television are combining their talents to create a new series for NBC. TVbytheNumbers.com reports that Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey have joined forces on a new comedy/variety series with the working title “Little Big Shots.”
The program from Warner Horizon Television will be hosted by Harvey and will showcast talented youngsters. NBC has reportedly ordered eight episodes of the one-hour program.
The show will focus on young singers, musicians and dancers along with other young talents.
“From pint-size breakdancers to 5-year-old piano virtuosos, these gifted performers will awe the nation with their talents, slay us with their cuteness and wow us with their accomplishments,” Warner Horizon said in an announcement. “These phenomenal kids show us once and for all that talent is born, not made.”
The program is executive produced by DeGeneres, Harvey, Jeff Kleeman and Gerald Washington.
