In addition to offering all programmes in German language, the channel will produce several TV shows tailor-made for the German audience.
E! Entertainment Germany will not only report from Hollywood, but also cover celebrities, the movie world, award ceremonies and other red carpet events in Germany such as Berlinale or Berlin Fashion Week.

The channel also plans a German adaption of US series "Fashion Police" in which Kelly Osbourne takes a critical view at celebrities' looks.
Parent company Universal Networks International Germany celebrated the relaunch on 24 October 2011 with a party in the Prinz Alfons Palais in Munich co-hosted by Kelly Osbourne.
