LOS ANGELES (AP) — NBC has a trio of hosts for its "Red Nose Day" charity telecast.
The network said Wednesday that David Duchovny, Jane Krakowski and Seth Meyers will each host an hour of Thursday's three-hour special.
The fundraiser for children living in poverty is the first U.S. version of Britain's "Red Nose Day" event that's raised more than $1 billion in its three decades.
Money from the NBC special and supplemental efforts will go to organizations helping poor children in the United States and elsewhere in the world.
Celebrities taking part in the show airing from 8-11 p.m. Eastern on Thursday include Julia Roberts, Pharrell, Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Aniston and Blake Shelton.
