The Emmy-winning ‘Hollywood Game Night’ host will appear in Christopher Guest’s comedy feature ‘Mascots’ on Netflix later this year.

Jane Lynch has signed with UTA, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. She had been a longtime client of Domain Talent agent Gabrielle Krengel, who died of cancer in August.

Lynch most recently co-hosted Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows, which aired Sunday on NBC, and she is currently hosting the fourth season of the network’s Hollywood Game Night, for which she has won two consecutive Emmys. She is a previous Emmy (and Golden Globe) winner for her scene-stealing role as Coach Sue Sylvester on Glee.

After the Fox musical comedy ended its six-season run last year, Lynch toured the country in her own live variety show, See Jane Sing, before returning to scripted television in January in CBS’ midseason sitcom Angel From Hell (which has since been canceled). But the actress, a frequent Christopher Guest repertory player, will reappear later this year in the mockumentarian’s Netflix comedy feature Mascots.

Lynch continues to be repped by attorney Adam Kaller of Hansen Jacobson.
