New York, NY – February 8, 2012 – Maya Rudolph returns to her SNL roots as host on February 18th. The SNL alum, known for her memorable impressions and uproarious characters, currently stars in the NBC sitcom “Up All Night” alongside Will Arnett and Christina Applegate. Rudolph was last seen in the Golden Globe nominated best film, “Bridesmaids.”
Sleigh Bells will make their network television debut on SNL. The Brooklyn duo quickly earned the adoration of critics with their debut album in 2010, “Treats,” ending up on over 150 “Best-Of” lists for that year. Their newest album, “Reign of Terror,” will be released on February 21.
"Saturday Night Live" is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.
