Jane Lynch to host ‘Hollywood Game Night’

'Glee' star to anchor NBC's new gameshow

NBC’s new gameshow “Hollywood Game Night” has found its host, tapping Jane Lynch to anchor the skein.

Peacock ordered eight hourlong episodes of “Game Night” from exec producers Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner in December. Program will feature A-list stars as they play games with non-celeb contestants in a cocktail party atmosphere for cash prizes. Gameshow is based on Hayes’ own game nights, and is considered to be a glimpse behind the curtain of the Hollywood scene.

“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,” said Paul Telegdy, prexy of alternative and late night programming at NBC. “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: “The format is sure to provide a lot of unexpected results that will keep everyone off-balance and entertained.”

Hollywood Game Night” is produced by Hazy Mills Prods., Mission Control Media and Universal TV. Hayes, Milliner, Michael Agbabian and Dwight D. Smith are the executive producers.
