Chance The Rapper is continuing his foray into TV.
For, fresh from his stint on Netflix’s ‘Rhythm + Flow,’ the MC has signed on to front the revival of MTV classic ‘Punk’d.’
Produced by MTV Studios, the refreshed series will arrive on Quibi – a unique new service that broadcasts episodes no longer than 10 minutes each. A format the new ‘Punk’d’ will adopt.
Peep the announcement and teaser clip:
Speaking on the gig, Chance said:
“Punk’d is one of MTV’s most iconic franchises. I grew up watching this show, and it’s surreal to be in the driver’s seat this time around on Quibi.”
The move comes on the heels of MTV Studios embracing new mediums; for, the company has adapted ‘Singled Out’ to a similar bite-sized format (with Keke Palmer co-hosting), while reality classic ‘The Real World’ has been rolled out on Facebook Watch – home to Jada Pinkett’s ‘Red Table Talk.’
As times change, so should strategies. So, this is definitely interesting.
