Ellen DeGeneres Expands Her TV Empire

Ellen DeGeneres is taking over the world!

Okay, maybe not the world but our favorite funny lady is branching out beyond her daily syndicated talk show.

Deadline Hollywood reports that Ellen has signed an exclusive multiyear production deal with the Warner Bros TV Group that spans several different divisions of the company.

Ellen will build up her production company, A Very Good Production, which will be run by former Comedy Central president of original programming and development Lauren Corrao.

Under the deal, DeGeneres and her company will develop and produce scripted network shows for Warner Bros TV, cable fare and reality series for Warner Horizon, and syndicated programming for Telepictures Prods., which produces Ellen’s popular daytime talk show.

In addition, Warner Bros has a first-look deal with DeGeneres on social media and other digital projects. DeGeneres is a Twitter juggernaut with 5.4 million followers.

“I’m so happy to be expanding my relationship with Warner Bros,” DeGeneres said. “It’s kind of becoming a family affair. My brother works on the lot and fingers crossed, my mother’s up for the role of Charlie Sheen’s love interest on ‘Two and a Half Men.’  So this is really working out.”
