Renowned US talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres, has joined Discovery where she will collaborate on a slate of content.

Exclusive to Discovery in the natural history space, DeGeneres will develop and produce a variety of specials, series, and documentaries. The line-up will highlight the wonders of the natural world and the wildlife that inhabits it for both Discovery Channel and streaming platform discovery+.

“Ellen’s dedication to the environment and her love for all animals, including the most endangered creatures who call our planet home, is unmatched […] We welcome Ellen and her team to the Discovery family as she brings her humor, her voice, and her ability to inspire to these important passion projects,” said Nancy Daniels, Chief Brand Officer, Discovery and Factual.

“I’m so excited to partner with Discovery. I’ll get to discover all kinds of things about incredible animals. For instance, did you know the ring-tailed lemur’s tail is longer than its body? I think that’s his tail. I hope that’s his tail. I have so much to discover with Discovery,” added DeGeneres.
