HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT is returning—but with a social distancing twist.

The special, which will air Tuesday, May 12 at 10/9c on NBC, will feature Jane Lynch hosting remotely, with Kristen Bell, Nick Jonas, and Kenan Thompson competing against Sean Hayes, John Legend, and Retta from their respective homes on behalf of RED NOSE DAY.

“So many people are facing profound loss and more uncertainty than ever before,” Lynch said. “All of us at HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT wanted to do something positive and helpful during this current crisis and since we’re of no use to the heroic medical professionals, a special episode of the show for such a worthy cause seemed like the next best thing!”         

The episode will feature the contestants playing—via interactive teleconference—“Trading Faces,” “Dance in Your Pants,” “Song Sung Wrong,” “Smash the Buzzer,” “I Love a Charade,” and “Celebrity Name Game.” The teams will be playing for up to $150,000 (from fundraising partner, Facebook Groups).

Additionally, viewers will be able to download their own game through www.NBC.com/HGN.

According to NBC, “Red Nose Day raises money and awareness to ensure that children in need are safe, healthy and educated in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and in some of the poorest communities in the world. With the outbreak of COVID-19, support for children in need has never been more critical. Throughout the Red Nose Day campaign, funds raised are being directed to address the impact of COVID-19 on children living in poverty and the organizations supporting them. This includes accelerated funding to many of Red Nose Day’s nonprofit grantee partners who are working on the frontlines of this crisis. Grantee partners include Feeding America, Save the Children, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Children’s Health Fund, Covenant House, The Global Fund and more. NBC is once again partnering with Comic Relief US, the nonprofit behind Red Nose Day, this year’s sixth annual Red Nose Day primetime event that will air Thursday, May 21 from 8-11 p.m. ET/PT. “
