NBC Orders Spin-Off of Ellen DeGeneres’s Little Big Shots


UNIVERSAL CITY: Following the success of Little Big Shots, NBC has commissioned Little Big Shots: Forever Young, executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey, who will also serve as host.

The series sees young-at-heart seniors showcase their hidden talents, personalities and wisdom. Little Big Shots: Forever Young is produced by Warner Horizon Television.

“We are excited to spotlight and celebrate the wit and wisdom of our elders,” said Paul Telegdy, the president of alternative and reality group at NBC Entertainment. “We can’t wait to see Steve Harvey in action with these incredibly vigorous and energetic seniors as they give him a run for his money with their unique talents, dynamic personalities and irresistible charms.”

Mike Darnell, the president of Warner Bros. unscripted and alternative television, commented, “The idea of doing a follow-up to Little Big Shots focusing on seniors struck us as a no-brainer. Just like the kids, they have insane skills that will amaze and surprise you—not to mention the often hysterical (and sometimes shocking) things they say. As good a host as Steve Harvey is, he may have finally met his match with this incredible set of elder statesmen.”

In addition to DeGeneres and Harvey, executive producers on the show include Jeff Kleeman, Gerald Washington, Ed Glavin, Mary Connelly and Andy Lassner. Little Big Shots: Forever Young is from Warner Horizon Television, East 112th Street Productions and A Very Good Production.
