Film Independent has tapped Fred Armisen and Kristen Bell to cohost the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards, a raucous afternoon that goes down on the Santa Monica beach the day before the Oscars, Saturday, February 21. The show will air for the first time live on IFC at 2:00pm PT/5:00 pm ET.
Armisen and Bell seem a match made in comedy heaven for this off-the-cuff affair that celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Armisen can currently be seen on IFC’s own sketch comedy series “Portlandia,” while Bell stars in the Showtime series “House of Lies” and is best known for “Veronica Mars” and for voicing “Frozen.”
Announced earlier, Joel Gallen will executive produce the awards show and producer Shawn Davis returns for his 13th show.
