Play, Party & Get Paid! VH1 has announced the launch of “Celebrity Squares,” hosted by comedian and actor DC Young Fly.
According to the press release, the series, executive produced by Kevin Hart for Hartbeat and Jesse Collins Entertainment, is a modern twist on the classic game show format featuring Black pop culture trivia.
“Celebrity Squares” will bring two contestants together to play Tic-Tac-Toe, banking cash, and prizes along the way.
The player with the most money in their bank at the end of the game will move on to the bonus round for a chance to win a $10,000 cash prize.
Tiffany Lea Williams, Executive Vice President, of Unscripted Programming and Development of BET said:
We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Hartbeat and Jesse Collins Entertainment for this exciting new project.
This show offers a fresh interpretation of the iconic Hollywood Squares format, with a focus on celebrating black pop culture.
With DC Young Fly’s laugh-out-loud humor, it promises to deliver a fun and exhilarating viewing experience. We look forward to bringing it to our audience.
DC Young Fly took to social media to share his excitement about his new gig.
