HLN To Launch ‘Heads Up,’ Based on Ellen DeGeneres Game

HLN said it would launch a new game show based on the “Heads Up!” segments from Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show in the first quarter of next year.

The 65-episode half-hour game show from Warner Brothers’ Telepictures will be hosted by comedienne Loni Love, co-host of the syndicated talk show “The Real.” The show will air daily Monday through Friday, HLN said.

In the “Heads Up!”  TV show, contestants pair up with a celebrity and try to correctly identify as many cards as they can based on clues from their teammate in categories ranging from movies and songs to actions, accents, body parts and more. The DeGeneres game is also the basis of an app for iOS and Android.

“We’re excited to translate this innovative game app into a TV show on HLN, and create another all-screens experience for our social media audience,” said Albie Hecht, executive vice president and general manager of HLN, in a prepared statement.

The series is HLN’s second game show based on a successful app. In January, the Keywords app paved the way for the premiere of “Keywords,”  the TV show, in March.

“Heads Up!” is from A Very Good Production in association with Telepictures. Ellen DeGeneres, Ed Glavin, Mary Connelly, Andy Lassner and Jeff Kleeman are the executive producers of the series.
