The Ellen Show is to take to the airwaves in South-East Asia on Lifetime Asia in a same-day telecast as the US! That’s right, no more waiting or having to watch just miserable little snippets on its YouTube channel because the show will premiere weekdays on Lifetime (Astro Ch 709) in Malaysia.
Apart from here, it will also be available in Brunei, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macau, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines.
“Ellen is such a topical show; we’re excited to share in the water cooler conversation,” said Michelle Schofield, senior vice president for programming and marketing of A+E Networks Asia.
The show is now in its 12th season, and Ellen has since gone on to win notable awards for her work as a talk show host. Watch the hilarity that ensued on The Ellen Show recently, when Ellen ran around scaring her team with the Annabelle doll:
The Ellen DeGeneres Show is produced by A Very Good Production and WAD Productions, in association with Telepictures Productions and is distributed internationally by Warner Bros International Television Distribution.
The daily show will premiere on 20th October at 8pm (Lifetime/Astro Ch 709).
