The comedic docu-style series follows the retired talk show host through her brief period of unemployment, where she picks up new hobbies in attempts to keep herself busy.
“Lately, I’ve been taking some time for just myself, away from the cameras,” DeGeneres says in a short preview video. “I’ve been having such a great time, I thought I would share some of what I’ve been doing with you.”
According to the series description, DeGenerous picks up hobbies such as bird watching, crocheting and making cards. As DeGenerous learns new skills, viewers can too.
“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” concluded in May, after a 19-season run. The series won 61 Emmys during its lifespan.
A string of complaints publicly came out on Twitter after comedian Kevin Porter tweeted that DeGeneres is “notoriously one of the meanest people alive,” and asked followers to share stories about her behavior.
During the Season 18 premiere, DeGenerous apologized for the alleged work environment. “I’m so sorry to the people it affected. I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again,” the 64-year-old comedian said.
