Ellen DeGeneres has landed a new design competition show on HGTV scheduled to premiere next year.

The talk show host has signed on to executive produce "Ellen's Design Challenge," a six-episode series that challenges contestants to sketch, design, and build different pieces of furniture, according to TV Guide.

"I'm so excited about this show because I love finding really special pieces of furniture," DeGeneres said in a statement. "One time I found a beautiful one-of-a-kind armoire that spoke to me in a way I’d never experienced. It turned out there was a drifter living inside of it, but that’s a story for another time."

"Ellen's Design Challenge" will be produced by DeGeneres' production company, A Very Good Production, and A. Smith & Co. with Telepictures.

"There has been a lot of dancing in our halls since we shared that we will be collaborating with Ellen," Kathleen Finch, president of HGTV and DIY Network, said in a statement. "When she talked to us about her love of buying and renovating homes, her personal passion for the creative process of furniture design emerged as something that she wanted to explore more. Since HGTV is the ultimate forum in this space, and since no other network can deliver an audience who is as enthusiastic as she is about the creative process, we just had to make it happen."

HGTV and DIY Network also revealed a few other new projects in the works, including a new series starring William Shatner and a new restoration-style program featuring Daryl Hall.
