Following its success last season, NBC’s comedy/variety series Little Big Shots will have a spinoff series, the network announced. While the original show features kids displaying their various talents, the new series — Little Big Shots: Forever Young — will feature seniors showcasing their hidden talents and offering their wisdom. As with the original, Steve Harvey and Ellen DeGeneres will also be producing this series, with Harvey (pictured) again serving as host.
Mike Darnell, President, Warner Bros. Unscripted and Alternative Television, said: “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.”
More from NBC:
“As the #1 new series last season among total viewers, Little Big Shots showcased the talent and comedy of the very young. Now the spotlight turns to America’s seniors, where Harvey will showcase undiscovered rare talents and hysterical encounters with musicians, singers, dancers and every form of ‘elderkind’ in the country. With many years of experience and wisdom, these seniors are sure to delight the audience with their strong opinions, incredible talent, and heartwarming stories.
“Averaging a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 13.0 million viewers overall with original episodes in its first season, Little Big Shots was the #1 new show of the season in total viewers and #1 new alternative series in adults 18-49. It was the most-watched new alternative series on any broadcast network in six years, since the debut of Undercover Boss during the 2009-10 season, and NBC’s most watched new alternative series in 10 years, since the premiere of Deal or No Deal during the 2005-06 season.”
