NBC is teaming with Steve Harvey and Ellen DeGeneres for a variety show that will showcase young talent called Little Big Shots.

Hosted by Harvey, the variety series will feature musicians, singers, dancers and every other form of wunderkind in the country, including pint-sized breakdancers and 5-year-old piano virtuosos. DeGeneres will executive produce the project with Harvey, Jeff Kleeman and Gerald Washington.

The news comes on the heels of NBC ordering drama series Chicago Med, the Chicago Fire/P.D. spin-off, other medical drama Heartbreaker, starring The Slap’s Melissa George, Wesley Snipes’ The Player, Carol Mendelsohn’s Game of Silence, and Blindspot, about a Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) who is discovered naked in Times Square, completely covered in mysterious, intricate tattoos with no memory of who she is or how she got there. See that picture here. On the comedy side, the network ordered Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s People Are Talking, America Ferrera and Ben Feldman workplace comedy Superstore and family fare Crowded.

Check out all the shows that have been renewed and canceled here.
