Even though there was some talk of Ellen DeGeneres getting canceled (in both the literal and woke sense) after being labeled as one of the biggest bullies on television, it looks like she’s just gotten her second chance at life. Actually, make that television life. That’s because she’s just signed a multi-year deal with the Discovery Channel. Here’s what you need to know.
According to Deadline, Ellen’s first Discovery project will drop on Earth Day. It’s called Endangered and Ellen will narrate and executive produce the documentary from Discovery and the BBC Natural History Unit, which will begin streaming on Earth Day, April 22, on Discovery+.
No Cancellation Here: Ellen DeGeneres Just Got A Multi-Year Deal
Also, Endangered marks the first time DeGeneres has narrated a documentary as well as the BBC Studios Natural History Unit’s first non-BBC commission.
It follows the effort of dedicated wildlife conservationists across the globe as they work to compile the latest version of The Red List – the most comprehensive record of the state of the world’s wildlife that has ever been created.
And while this might be good news for Ellen, it seems like there are more of her Ellen DeGeneres viewers tuning out rather than tuning in. Her ratings have been on the decline since her show’s season began in September.
This comes after several reports have indicated that Ellen is certainly not the ‘Queen of Nice’ or at least, when it comes to the way she has treated people in the past. Others say that Ellen is the kind of person who doesn’t want anyone to speak to her unless spoken to, let alone chew gum in her presence.
The show is currently being investigated for it’s “toxic work environment” following allegations made that Ellen is perhaps one of the most difficult people to work with in the entertainment industry.
During her premiere, Ellen addressed the toxic work environment and sexual harassment allegations that have marred her show in recent months.
She said, “As you may have heard this summer, there were allegations of a toxic work environment at our show and then there was an investigation. I learned that things happened here that never should’ve happened. I take that very seriously, and I want to say I’m so sorry to the people who were affected.”
