Comedian, writer and Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-star Chelsea Peretti will host the 2019 WGA Awards’ Los Angeles show, which is set to run February 17 at the Beverly Hilton. The WGA will hold its East Coast show concurrently at the Edison Ballroom.
Peretti has earned a pair of WGA noms for her work writing on Parks and Recreation. Her scribe credits include Saturday Night Live, Portlandia, The Sarah Silverman Program and Kroll Show. On film she recently co-starred in the comedy Game Night and just wrapped shooting Friendsgiving and Spinster.
Former SNL writer Hugh Fink returns to executive produce the L.A. show.
“Chelsea Peretti is hosting the Writers Guild Awards, and she will do a FANTASTIC job,” Fink said in a press release Tuesday. “Not a WITCH HUNT. I picked Chelsea because she’s a great comedian and writer. There was NO COLLUSION.”
Up next on the WGA Awards docket are nominations for motion pictures and documentaries, set for January 7. The TV noms were announced earlier this month.
