Neil Patrick Harris Saturday Night Takeaway

Neil Patrick Harris is to host a US version of British TV show Saturday Night Takeaway.

The How I Met Your Mother star will host 10 episodes of the variety show for NBC.

Neil Patrick Harris has signed on to host the US version of Saturday Night Takeaway for NBC.

Harris called the show, created by British TV presenting duo Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, “a game changer”.

McPartlin, Donnelly and Harris will produce the yet-to-be named show, which is reportedly not going to air on Saturday Nights.

The show features comedy sketches, song and dance numbers and audience interaction. Here’s a clip from the UK version where Ant and Dec play a prank on Piers Morgan with the help of Simon Cowell…

Speaking about the upcoming show, Harris said..

“As I watched the show, I couldn’t stop smiling. Now that I’ve seen many seasons, my face hurts… Its unique structure fits right into my random skill set. I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and have some fun.”

Harris has just finished a run on Broadway in Hedwig and the Angry Inch and was recently announced as the host of the 2015 Oscars.
