According to Entertainment Weekly, NBC is teaming up with Steve Harvey and Ellen DeGeneres for a comedy and variety show that will showcase young talent. The show is called Little Big Shots.
The two daytime talk show hosts and comedians will produce the eight-episode series. Harvey will host the show, even though both of them are quite qualified to do so.
“Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey are two of biggest names in comedy, so the show is expected to please viewers.”
The new comedy and variety show will feature the world’s most talented and extraordinary kids. Young musicians, singers, dancers, and every form of talent in the country will perform on the show.
Talent of every kind will be showcased from break dancing to piano playing. The young performers will prove that talent comes in all sizes. The kids will be interviewed by Steve which will make for some interesting conversations.
The kids are cute and talented, and there will never be a dull moment on the show. It will be a family show where kids at home can watch and enjoy with their parents.
Variety reported that DeGeneres and Harvey will be executives of the show along with Jeff Kleeman and Gerald Washington. Little Big Shots will be produced by Warner Horizon Television, East 112th Street Productions, and A Very Good Production.
Producing Little Big Shots comes at a good time for Ellen because her short-lived sitcom, One Big Happy, was just cancelled along with a lot of other shows.
Ellen DeGeneres, 57, is a comedian, television host, actress, writer, and producer. She starred in the popular sitcom Ellen from 1994 to 1998, and has hosted her syndicated television talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, since 2003. Occasionally, Ellen has a talented kid segment on her show.
Steve Harvey, 58, is a comedian, television host, radio personality, actor, and author. He hosts The Steve Harvey Morning Show, Steve Harvey, and Family Feud. Steve also has featured talented kids on his show.
Both of these talented hosts have a good rapport with kids. Ellen and Steve have had lots of kids on their daytime shows. The kids have performed and displayed many different talents to the amazement of the live studio audience and the television audience.
A date and time have not been announced yet for Little Big Shots. More than likely, Ellen and Steve will announce the particulars on their daytime talk shows.
