Kudrow will emcee the WGA’s West Coast awards ceremony at the Hyatt Regency Plaza. As previously announced, Daily Show correspondent and former Black-ish executive producer Larry Wilmore will host the 2015 Writers Guild Awards’ New York ceremony.
A WGA West member since 2005, Kudrow in a statement said she was “truly honored” to accept the hosting gig, which follows the second season of her HBO series The Comeback. The Comeback stars Kudrow as Valerie Cherish, a sitcom star desperate for the limelight and willing to be followed by reality TV cameras.
Hugh Fink, executive producer of the L.A. show, quipped that Kudrow was reluctant to preside over the ceremony when first approached. “But when I told her this awards show gets very little media attention, has no afterparty and doesn’t pay anything, she said it was a no-brainer,” Fink added in a statement.
