Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey have teamed up to produce a new comedy/variety show, and NBC is almost sold.
Tentatively titled Little Big Shots, the show will showcase young, gifted performers, including musicians and dancers (pint-size break-dancers a la The Ellen DeGeneres Show), who will all chat with Steve Harvey in conversations and interviews.
Ellen DeGeneres has plenty of experience turning young talent into big stars. Who doesn’t love young Brits Rosie and Sophia Grace? Steve Harvey’s talk show features a segment called ‘Extraordinary Kids.’
If ever a dream team for promoting kid’s talent was created–then here it is with Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey.

Little Big Shots will start off with eight hour-long episodes. NBC bigwigs are expected to tout the project when it presents its 2015-16 primetime schedule to media buyers in New York on Monday, May 11th.
Can’t you see Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey creating something really amazing with this new show? They both have the perfect balance of humor and business–plus a real love of children.
Hopefully NBC will say a resounding ‘Yes!’ to this new project and fans will soon enjoy yet another production from Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey.
