Ellen Digital Network Unveils All-New Original Programming During 2018 Digital Content NewFronts

Ellen DeGeneres and Kristen Bell Announce Season 2 of Original Digital Series Momsplaining
NEW YORK(5/1/2018) -

Ellen Digital Network (EDN) unveiled today unprecedented new and returning original programming during the 2018 Digital Content NewFronts. The diverse and unparalleled slate reinforces Ellen DeGeneres’ unique brand, showcasing the power of funny, kindness, and authenticity. ELLEN continues to shine as a powerhouse in the digital space by producing and distributing not-to-be-missed, high-quality content filled with positivity and heart through Ellen Digital Studios.

Fresh off a successful inaugural season of Momsplaining with more than 100 million views, DeGeneres and the multi-talented Kristen Bell announced the highly anticipated return of the digital series in partnership with Johnson’s Baby (watch announce HERE). Kristen will infuse her one-of-a-kind humor throughout Season 2 as she attempts to master motherhood.

EDN is thrilled to welcome an array of new collaborations to the network and are proud to partner with two-time New York Times best-selling author, television and podcast host, content creator, philanthropist, and overall digital pioneer Hannah Hart. EDN and Hart are developing and producing an original digital series centered around helping individuals in need of some love related advice to prepare them for a life-changing event. 

EDN also announced their partnership with media company ATTN:, a platform that breaks down important societal topics and conversations into digestible, entertaining videos and series. Together, these two story telling platforms will aim to create a digital animated series that brings awareness to pressing, timely issues of our culture. 

In addition, DeGeneres continually highlights impactful voices and most recently welcomed 11-year-old Naomi Wadler to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” following her inspiring speech at the “March for Our Lives” rally. The fierce, young activist captivated DeGeneres as well as her audience and EDN is delighted to team up with Wadler to continue to shine a light on one of the most powerful voices of her generation.

Based off the success of ELLEN’s partnership with Cheerios and their One Million Acts of Good campaign, which garnered 20 million social actions, 96 million video views, and over 1 billion media impressions, the two iconic brands are teaming up again. Together, they will continue to spread kindness through more innovative, first-ever integrations and digital content. The latest digital series #BeeKind starring actress and animal lover Beth Behrs will premiere on DeGeneres’ Instagram at the beginning of May.
