Adam Devine to Host MTV Movie & TV Awards

“Workaholics” star will host first telecast that includes TV honors

Adam Devine, star of Comedy Central’s retired “Workaholics,” is your host for the inaugural “MTV Movie & TV Awards” — a beefed up product from the annual movie awards show produced by Casey Patterson Entertainment.

“I have dreamed about it since I was a teenager. It was usually a dry dream,” Devine said of the honor. “But I would be remiss if I didn’t admit that sometimes it was wet.”

In addition to the long-running Viacom series, Devine is also a star of the “Pitch Perfect” franchise at Universal, and recently appeared alongside Zac Efron in the comedy “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.”

Devine will be seen in Mail Order Comedy’s new project “Game Over, Man!,” which is set to release end of 2017 on Netflix.

The MTV Movie & TV Awards will air live from L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium on Sunday, May 7.  “Lip Sync Battle” co-creator and former Viacom EVP Casey Patterson will serve as executive producer with MTV’s Garrett English. Melanie Block is the executive overseeing the production. Wendy Plaut serves as co-executive producer and will oversee celebrity talent. Amani Duncan is in charge of music talent.
