HBO’s forthcoming streaming service has tapped Ellen DeGeneres’ producing talent.
The talk show host announced on Friday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, that she has teamed with HBO Max on three new series and a docuseries in development.
Ellen’s Home Design Challenge gives “eight forward-thinking designers the chance to push their creativity to the limit,” according to the official description. First Dates Hotel is a matchmaking series. Little Ellen “explores the world through the eyes of a hilarious and unpredictable 7-year-old Ellen DeGeneres,” And Finding Einstein is the only docuseries aiming to “seek out, celebrate, and support a fresh generation of Einsteins.”
“Ellen is a singular talent, and a powerhouse, creative triple-threat that we are lucky to have now bringing her talents to bear on behalf of HBO Max,” Kevin Reilly, the chief content officer at HBO Max, said in a statement. “Ellen’s flair for home design and matchmaking will most certainly inspire and delight -– but HBO Max is full service, so as not to leave the kids out she’s bringing them back to the hilarious misadventures of her childhood in an imaginative animated series.”
