NBC announced today that its new kids variety series, Little Big Shots, executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey, will premiere at 8P on Sunday, March 13th.
The network has high hopes for the series, part of NBC’s push in live entertainment/variety programming. Hosted by Harvey, the hourlong series features “young talent, from musicians, singers and dancers to a 4-year-old basketball phenom, a 5-year-old reincarnation of Bruce Lee and every form of wunderkind from around the globe.”
“The talent level that these kids exhibit is truly remarkable,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment. “Steve’s easygoing rapport with them makes those conversations both incredibly funny and wonderfully charming.”
Jeff Kleeman, Gerald Washington & Robin Ashbrook executive produce along DeGeneres and Harvey. Alison Holloway is co-executive producer. The series is produced by Warner Horizon Television, East 112th Street Productions and A Very Good Production.
