California rapper Snoop Dogg is teaming up with longtime TV personality Martha Stewart to host a new cooking show on VH1 this fall.
The ten-episode weekly series Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party — ordered straight to series by the network — will see Stewart and Snoop cooking and hosting dinner parties for their famous friends, according to Variety.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg, two of pop culture’s biggest icons,” VH1 and Logo president Chris McCarthy said in a statement. “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.”
Incidentally, the platinum-selling hip-hop legend and the homemaking maven have joined forces on TV in the past.
The two were also recently paired on ABC’s revival of $100,000 Pyramid.
“At our dinner party, we will exemplify America’s fascination with food, entertaining and celebrity,” Stewart said in a statement. “Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party will redesign the traditional food competition shows in a new, different and very funny way.”
Added Snoop: “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!”
Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party is the second television project in which Snoop is currently involved. He’s also set to executive produce the scripted weed-themed comedy Mary + Jane, premiering in September on MTV.
The rapper is currently out on his “High Road Tour” with fellow rapper Wiz Khalifa. Dozens of people were injured Friday night after a metal barrier collapsed at the duo’s concert at the BB&T Center in Camden, New Jersey.
