Rapper/actor/director Ice Cube is set to revisit one of the many titles that line his already decorated resume – television producer.

Indeed, after occupying the producer’s chair for a number of small screen shows over the last ten years, the ‘Friday‘-series star is set to team with VH1 to resurrect one of TV’s longest-running game shows:  ‘Hollywood Squares.’

Putting a modern twist on the series, which aired across four decades from the 60s to the 90s, the revised version of the show has been announced with the working title ‘Hip Hop Squares.’  Details inside on how VH1 is set to continue capitalizing on their popularity with Urban audiences:



“The Viacom-owned cable network [VH1] is teaming with Ice Cube to put a hip-hop twist on Hollywood Squares, handing out a straight-to-series pickup for Hip Hop Squares…

Sources say the cabler has ordered at least 20 episodes.

Set to bow in the fall [of 2016], the VH1 take on Tic-tac-toe will feature celebrity contestants matching wits and testing their pop culture knowledge with the superstar squares, featuring the biggest names in hip-hop, comedy and entertainment.”

    Why not be creative and think of a brand new idea for television. The Hollywood film and TV is literally lazy and or out of ideas. All of the shows and movies we are given lately are like 90% remakes or rehashes of what has already been done or seen.

    Can we seriously not be creative anymore and come up with new ideas?
