“Todrick” revolves around the lives of Hall (pictured) and the troupe that helps him choreograph and stage his weekly musical efforts. “Broke A$$ Game Show” is a man-on-the-street format in which hosts David Magidoff and Derek Gaines challenge New Yorkers to play games and participate in other stunts to win cash prizes.
Both half-hour series have eight-episode orders and are targeted for debut next year.
“Broke A$$ Game Show” and “Todrick” have only one thing in common – they each have incredibly fresh and fun creative forces behind them,” said MTV programming prexy Susanne Daniels. “We love the hilariously imaginative, unusual games in “Broke A$$” and we’re excited to bring Todrick’s tenacious energy and multi-dimensional talent to MTV for his first-ever series.”
“Todrick” hails from Brian Graden Media. Graden, a former MTV and VH1 chief, exec produces with Danny Salles, Lois Curren and Gaurav Misra as well as Hall, Scooter Braun and Danny Rose.
“Broke A$$” is produced by Core Media Group’s B-17 Entertainment. Rhett Bachner and Brien Meagher are exec producers.
