NBC has devoted its prime-time schedule on May 25 to the Comic Relief fundraiser for children in need.

Running Wild with Bear Grylls for Red Nose Day, with Roberts joining the host in Africa, will air at 9 p.m. 

Additional programming includes a celebrity edition of American Ninja Warrior with Derek Hough, Natalie Morales and others preceding it at 8 p.m.

The night will be capped by NBC’s third annual The Red Nose Day Special, hosted from 10-11 p.m. by Chris Hardwick

Red Nose Day was founded in Britain by filmmaker Richard Curtis and expanded to the U.S. two years ago, where it has raised more than $ 60 million to date. Donations are made through the sale of red clown noses at Walgreens and Duane Reade drugstores, neighborhood penny drives and bake sales, and the NBC telethon.

An added attraction this year: Curtis, writer-director of the 2003 movie Love Actually, created a short reunion film that will air as part of The Red Nose Day Special. Cast members revisiting their roles from the romantic comedy include Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy and Rowan Atkinson.

Beneficiaries of Red Nose Day grants include charity organizations such as Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Save the Children and the Children’s Health Fund.

Britain’s Red Nose Day, which took place in March, brought in more than $ 90 million, according to Comic Relief Inc. The campaign has raised more than $ 1 billion worldwide since its origin in 1988.
