The Independence Day star is currently a judge on American Idol, but he will appear in his own series after the reality show's final season wraps up next spring (16).

Harry is set to premiere in September, 2016 and feature interviews, musical performances, and parodies, according to a statement from bosses at TV company NBCUniversal.

"I'm a lucky guy. I get to be a husband to a wonderful wife, a father to three incredible daughters, and an entertainer to the most amazing fans," Connick, Jr. says. "And now, I'm honoured to be able to put smiles on people's faces on a daily basis... Harry will be an hour filled with fun, music and laughter. Fasten your seat belts - it's gonna be one heck of a good time!"
