Los Angeles — Andy Samberg is taking center stage at the Emmy Awards.

Fox said on Thursday that the star of the network's sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine will host the September ceremony.

In a statement, Samberg says, "Buckle your seat belts, Emmy viewers!" and promises the audience a wild ride.

Samberg has an Emmy track record: The former Saturday Night Live player starred in and co-wrote the lyrics for a satirical SNL music video that won a 2007 trophy. The video with Justin Timberlake was about a memorable X-rated Christmas gift in a box.

NBC late-night host Seth Meyers hosted the Emmys last year, when the ceremony aired on his home network.

The 67th Primetime Emmy Awards will air on 20 September from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
