Scarlett Moffatt will be the first celeb to take on a brand improv entertainment show.
Channel 4's Host The Week will see a celebrity guest unwittingly play both host and hero for one night only.
Scarlett Moffatt will be the first guest host thrust into the limelight to perform in a number of total unrehearsed items.
In each episode, the guest host will take on roles in a number of topical sketches as they’re placed into a series of unconventional situations, with no hint at what’s going to take place next.
More items will see them co-host a satirical news show, present their own chat show, and even play host to a game show with real life contestants. Each segment will warmly celebrate the guest host’s life and career whilst also providing topical comedy.
Leading our star through this immersive and adrenaline-charged experience will be our troupe of talented improvisers and character comedians – directed by Tom Parry from award winning sketch group Pappy’s.
Host The Week also promises surprise celebrity guests, top music acts, singers and dancers to make for an "electrifying entertainment experience."
Ed Havard, Channel 4’s Head of Events, Entertainment & Sport said: “This hilarious and topical hybrid show will offer a unique televisual experience for viewers as anything can, and probably will happen. With the smash hit Murder in Successville, Tiger Aspect has an excellent track record in organised TV chaos and we hope to deliver something just as brilliant.”
Ben Cavey, Joint Managing Director of Tiger Aspect added: “Tiger Aspect Entertainment continues to develop brilliantly inventive and original ideas, so it makes absolute sense that our next generation comedy entertainment show ‘Host The Week’ has found its home at C4 who have always been at the forefront of distinctive and ground-breaking programme making.”
A total of three, 60 minute episodes have been commissioned to be be filmed as live in front of a studio audience.
Host The Week begins in June on Channel 4.
