June 26 (UPI) — “Saturday Night Live” alum Jay Pharoah is slated to host “Unfiltered,” a remotely produced game show for Nickelodeon.

The kid-oriented cable network announced Pharoah will host the six-episode first season of the show, which is scheduled to premiere July 11 at 8:30 p.m. EDT.

“Unfiltered” features a panel of young performers — “America’s Got Talent”-winning ventriloquist Darci Lynne and “All That” stars Lex Lumpkin and Gabrielle Nevaeh Green — attempting to guess the identities of virtually disguised celebrity guests.

“As a person who likes to transform and play multiple characters, I always love a good disguise and I can’t wait to see which panelist will be able to figure out our guests’ identities,” Pharaoh said.

“Nickelodeon’s ‘Unfiltered’ is going to be an outrageously good time, and we have some big names and surprises that you really won’t want to miss!”

Pharoah also serves as executive producer of the series, alongside Shaina Farrow and Ben Pluimer.
