The Television Critics Assn. announced Tuesday morning that “Jane the Virgin” star Jaime Camil will host the annual TCA Awards this summer.

Scheduled for Aug. 6 at the Beverly Hilton, the 32nd Annual TCA Awards will honor the  programming that has made an impact on the previous TV season. The awards are chosen by the more than 220 critics and writers covering TV who make up the TCA. Previous hosts include James Corden, Conan O’Brien, Craig Ferguson and Key & Peele, among others.

“With his natural charm and quick wit, Jaime Camil has quickly become one of the most likeable personalities on television,” said TCA President Amber Dowling in a statement.


The TCA’s announcement also revealed that Rogelio De La Vega, Camil’s telenovela superstar character from CW’s “Jane the Virgin,” will also be on hand to fill in for Camil as needed during his hosting duties.

Camil tweeted after the announcement: “Dress code for the @OfficialTCA’s: #Lavender Avoid: #Peach”

The TCA Awards take place during the TCA Press Tour, a twice-yearly, network-by-network presentation of new and returning programming, actors, writers and executives to journalists that is in Los Angeles. The summer press tour is scheduled to run from July 27 through August 11.
