Veteran actress Jane Lynch already has an impressive resume on both television and in film, but she’s now adding game show host to her list.
The Glee star will host NBC’s Hollywood Game Night, which will feature celebrities going up against non-celebrities.
It will be a fun atmosphere, with a live house band, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres being served. Out of the two non-celebrities competing, one will win cash.
"With Jane Lynch on board as our host, we now have a key component in place that will further enliven the sheer fun of a raucous Hollywood party that will include real everyday people,” NBC president of alternative and late night programming, Paul Telegdy, said in a statement, The Wrap reports.
“Her exuberant wit and ability to think quickly will be the perfect match for our show which will give viewers a fresh look inside the off-set lives of their favorite celebrities -- and allow them a chance to win money as well."
Lynch added she’s “so thrilled” about it and the show “is sure to provide a lot of unexpected results that will keep everyone off-balance and entertained."
Sean Hayes (Will & Grace) will co-executive produce with Todd Milliner., USA Today reports.
NBC has ordered eight episodes of the show.
