MUMBAI: Heads Up!, a new television series based on the popular game and app of the same name from The Ellen DeGeneres Show, is coming to HLN as a fast-paced game show.

Launching in first quarter 2016, the 65-episode half-hour game show strip from Telepictures will be hosted by Loni Love ? comedian, actress and co-host of syndicated talk show The Real ? and will air daily, Mondays through Fridays.

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. In Heads Up!, (almost) nothing is off limits.

Ellen DeGeneres said, ?I?m so excited that Heads Up! is going to be a game show. It?s so fun and addictive. I play it on my show all the time. I play it at home. I played it last night at Jennifer Aniston?s house. She wasn?t home, so please don?t print that part.?

?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. And to be in business with a break-the-Internet star like Ellen is incredible,? said HLN executive vice president and general manager Albie Hecht.

The Heads Up! app (iOS and Android) has been downloaded more than 16 million times worldwide and been played more than a half billion times. It was Apple?s top paid app of 2014.

The Heads Up! 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. DeGeneres, Ed Glavin, Mary Connelly, Andy Lassner and Jeff Kleeman are the executive producers of the series.
