William Shatner, Ellen DeGeneres
Ellen DeGeneres is joining the HGTV family with a six-episode competition series, Scripps announced at its upfront presentation on Tuesday.
Ellen's Design Challenge will feature six competitors as they tackle challenges to sketch, design and build furniture in just 24 hours. Throughout the series, the contestants must showcase their creativity and versatility to impress a panel of judges. The last one standing will win a cash prize.
"I'm so excited about this show because I love finding really special pieces of furniture," DeGeneres said. "One time I found a beautiful one-of-a-kind armoire that spoke to me in a way I'd never experienced. It turned out there was a drifter living inside of it, but that's a story for another time."
