Neil Patrick Harris has just landed another dream gig—the actor is getting his very own variety show! Modeled after the British TV hit Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, the New York-based series will be filmed before a live audience and include musical numbers, comedy sketches, mini game shows, hidden camera pranks on celebrities, and appearances by A-list stars.

"As I watched the show, I couldn’t stop smiling. Now that I’ve seen many seasons, my face hurts. It’s a game changer," Harris says in a statement. "Nothing like this has been done before, and I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and have some fun!"

The versatile star has had quite a month—he was recently confirmed as the 2015 Oscars host, and his film Gone Girl has been wildly popular at the box office. Be sure to look for the 10-episode series when it makes its debut on NBC sometime next year.
