LOS ANGELES, Sept. 18 (UPI) -- A&E Networks says it has greenlit Little Funny, executive producer Ellen DeGeneres' docu-series about child comedian Saffron Herndon.
"It's crazy that Saffy is telling such hilarious jokes at 11 years old. When I was 11, I was telling knock-knock jokes. To be honest, I'm still telling knock-knock jokes," DeGeneres said in a statement.
"The world of standup comedy has never been explored through the point of view of an 11-year-old kid," added Elaine Frontain Bryant, the network's executive vice president and head of programming. "Saffy's journey, like that of any artist, is unique and unexpected. Viewers will have a peek behind the curtain as she hones her craft with the help of today's best comics."
