YouTube on Wednesday said it's launching 11 free new original shows as people spend more time at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. They include a dance special called Move With Me featuring dancer and producer Matt Steffanina, and a show about people being creative together during the pandemic called Create Together With Me, hosted by Joseph Gordon-Levitt

"Some shows will help you learn, some will make you laugh," YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said in a tweet. "There's something in this list for everyone."

A handful of shows launch later this month, while others start streaming in May and June. Other celebrities who'll make appearances include Melinda Gates, Nicholas Sparks, Karlie Kloss, Bill Nye and Janelle Monae.
