NBC has officially given the green light to Ellen DeGeneres’ new series, Ellen’s Game of Games, with a six-episode order. The primetime game show, produced by Warner Horizon Television, is comprised of games featured on Ellen’s daytime talk show including What’s In The Box?, Know Or Go? and Heads Up! – the latter which was picked up as a series on HLN only to be shelved months later. DeGeneres will serve as host and as an executive producer through her studio-based production company A Very Good Production. Mary Connelly, Ed Glavin, Andy Lassner, Kevin Leman, Jeff Kleeman and David A. Hurwitz will also serve as executive producers. Excited for her new primetime series, DeGeneres said, “We’re pulling out all the stops — gigantic sets, hilarious games. It’s going to be like a combination of ‘American Ninja Warrior,’ ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race,’ and a water park. OK, it’s nothing like that, but you should still watch.” No word yet on when the show premieres.
A couple of Ellen’s games are available to play on Amazon, Android and iOS devices. Check out the apps listed below.
