Ellen DeGeneres has announced that she is working on four new series, which will stream on the upcoming HBO Max set to launch in the spring of 2020.
The four original series include: the design competition show Ellen’s Home Design Challenge the dating show First Dates Hotel, the 2-D animated children’s series Little Ellen, and the docuseries Finding Einstein. DeGeneres also surprised her audience with a two-year HBO Max subscription in celebration of the news.
“I’m very excited to bring my new shows to HBO Max,” Degeneres said on the episode.“I don’t know who Max is, but I can’t wait to work with him.”
All four series come as a part of the comedian’s overall deal with Warner Bros. They join DeGeneres’ multiple other unscripted projects which include Ellen’s Game of Games on NBC, and three holiday specials titled Ellen’s Greatest Night of Giveaways, which are set to air on NBCUniversal’s streaming service Peacock.
“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,” said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer at HBO Max and president of TNT, TBS, and truTV. “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.”
HBO Max will launch in spring. A price has not been announced.
