Audiences will be seeing a whole lot more of Neil Patrick Harris come next year. (Not more than audiences who saw NPH in Gone Girl.) He’s just been tapped to host the Academy Awards and according to Vulture he’ll be getting a variety show on NBC.

This is said to be the U.S. version of the U.K.’s variety show, Saturday Night Takeaway. Not much is known about the show except for the fact that it’ll be based in New York City. 

Harris had this to say about the show: 

“Nothing like this has been done before, and it's unique structure fits right into my random skill set. I can't wait to roll up my sleeves and have some fun!"
