He will both curate and host the currently untitled, weekly, hour-long format "that promises a combination of controlled chaos and his favourite funny people on the planet".
Channel 4 explain: "The show will see Harry acting as both host and curator of his very own authored late night comedy show. Featuring a host of Harry's favourite comedians and acts, each of the six episodes will be recorded during the week of transmission in front of an audience."
They add: "In addition to well-known and established acts, many of the performers may well be new to viewers but all will be handpicked - and approved - by Harry and introduced accordingly. Performances on the night could take the form of an interview with Harry, audience participation, regular returning comedy segments or simply taking to the floor to do their act. However, given Harry's reputation for the more anarchic, it promises to be full of surprises."
Ed Havard, commissioner as Channel 4's Head of Entertainment said: "I'm thrilled that a huge star like Harry is excited by the opportunities in our new 11pm slot. We've wanted to work with him for a very long time - he has always been a champion of new comedy talent and with Harry at the helm, the series is a fantastic chance to introduce a raft of the best new faces to Channel 4's audience."
The announcement marks Hill's fourth entertainment series in recent years. His ITV panel show Harry Hill's Alien Fun Capsule is due to return for a third series shortly, whilst Sky One chat format Harry Hill's Tea Time has run for two series to date.
More information about the new Channel 4 series will be revealed later in the year.
