Ellen DeGeneres is packing up her games and heading to a new playground. NBC announced Thursday a six-episode order for “Ellen’s Game of Games,” a game show based on expanded versions of games already featured on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
“I’m so excited to be hosting a huge prime-time game show for NBC,” DeGeneres said in a statement released by the network. “We’re pulling out all the stops — gigantic sets, hilarious games. It’s going to be like a combination of ‘American Ninja Warrior,’ ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and a water park. OK, it’s nothing like that, but you should still watch.”
Contestants on the game show will be pulled from the audience — reminiscent of classic game shows such as “The Price Is Right” — and given the opportunity to win cash prizes by performing stunts, answering questions and any variety of other tasks dreamed up by DeGeneres and her team.
