Fox and the TV Academy has chosen  Andy Samberg as this year's Emmy host.

The actor, comedian and producer will host the67th Primetime live awards show on September 20, 2015.

"Buckle your seat belts, Emmy viewers!," said Samberg in a statement. "Like, in general you should buckle your seat belts in your car. In fact, even if you're not an Emmy viewer, you should buckle your seat belt. It can be dangerous on the road. Also, if you're not an Emmy viewer, you should strongly consider becoming one this year, because I'm hosting, and it's gonna be a wild ride. So buckle your seat belts."

"The moment the Emmy Awards' host was brought up, we said it had to be Andy," said Fox Television Group chairmen and CEOs Gary Newman and Dana Walden. "He is fearless, hilarious, an award-winning comedian, singer, writer and actor with incredible live TV experience. We know he'll deliver the laughs and give viewers an incredible night they will enjoy."

This is Adam's first tome of hosting a major TV event.
