Nick Cannon is set to host his own late-night show.

The 38-year-old comedian is teaming up with Fox to create a weekly topical series that will cover pop culture and feature high-profile celebrity interviews, music performances, and stand-up comics.

Nick and his manager, Michael Goldman of NCredible Entertainment, will also produce the programme alongside 'The Walking Dead' producer Michael Davies.

The rapper will also be added to the soon-to-be independent network's digital team, along with producer Michael, to create segments that will be circulated on social media.

As well as the chat show, the former 'America's Got Talent' presenter is also set to executively produce and host the network's new celebrity reality show 'The Masked Singer'.

The upcoming programme will feature ten episodes and will air in January 2019 - the show will feature celebrities singing in a head-to-toe costume and face mask which conceals their identity from other contestants, panelists, and the audience.

A dozen famous contestants will appear and compete on the show, with one singer eliminated every week and their identity is only revealed once they have left the competition

The judges have no idea, however small hints revealing their identity will be given to viewers during the show.

The judging panel will be made up of 'The Hangover' actor Ken Jeong, 49, 'Two and Half Men' star, Jenny McCarthy, 45, former Pussycat Doll, Nicole Scherzinger, 40, and 41-year-old 'Blurred Lines' hitmaker Robin Thicke.

The show arrives as Fox is due to become a Disney property once a multi-billion-dollar deal closes and the so-called 'New Fox' will focus on wider reaching programming, including sports procedurals and multi-camera comedies.
