One, two, three and to the four, Snoop Doggy Dogg and Martha Stewart at the door.
VH1 has ordered a new unscripted series starring Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg with the working title “Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party.” The series will feature the lifestyle maven and the D-O-double-G teaming up each week to host a dinner party with celebrity guests. It is set to premiere this fall on the Viacom-owned cable network.
The series is created and executive produced by Stewart and Kim Miller Olko for Sequential Brands Group; Snoop Dogg and Ted Chung for Merry Jane; and SallyAnn Salsano for 495 Productions. Stewart and Snoop Dogg recently appeared together on ABC’s “100,000 Pyramid.” Snoop Dogg has been a guest on Stewart’s talk show, and both appeared on last year’s Comedy Central roast of Justin Bieber.
“At our dinner party, we will exemplify America’s fascination with food, entertaining and celebrity,” Stewart said. “‘Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party’ will redesign the traditional food competition shows in a new, different and very funny way.”
Snoop Dogg added, “My homegirl, Martha and I have a special bond that goes back. We’re gonna be cooking, drinking and having a good time with our exclusive friends. Can’t wait for you to see how we roll together!”
The hip-hop star is also an executive producer of the upcoming scripted comedy “Mary + Jane” through his Merry Jane company for VH1 sibling MTV.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg, two of pop culture’s biggest icons,” said VH1 and Logo president Chris McCarthy. “Good parties are filled with fun, food and unexpected guests. Wait til you see what happens at ‘Martha and Snoop’s Dinner Party’; it will be unforgettable.”
