Syfy Taps Yvette Nicole Brown to Host ‘Cosplay Melee’
Actress Yvette Nicole Brown is set to host the upcoming Syfy series Cosplay Melee. The self-professed fandom geek and regular on The Talking Dead, will kick off her hosting duties when the hour-long series debuts next month, March 21st.
Each episode will reportedly feature four world class cosplayers competing to create not only the most daring and original costumes, but also fully formed characters they must bring to life through live performances.
“As a huge fan of the creativity cosplayers bring to their craft, nothing makes me happier than having a front row seat for the amazing creations set to hit the Cosplay Melee runway,” Yvette said via Twitter. “These talented artists are going to shine.”
In addition to her new Syfy stint, Yvette also co-stars in the CBS comedy The Odd Couple. You may also recognize her as the voice of Amanda on DC Super Hero Girls and Luna on Elena of Avatar. She most recently appeared on an episode of Dr. Ken and as Shirley Bivins in the The New Edition Story.
