Ice Cube is set to star and executive produce a “Celebrity Deathmatch” revival for MTV Studios.
According to Variety, the revival will be a new take on the stop-animation series, which first aired between 1998-2001 on MTV.
“Celebrity Deathmatch” originally aired from 1998-2001 on MTV. It presented parodies of various celebrities as they engaged in brutal, no-holds-barred wrestling matches. It featured the voices of Mills Lane, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Debbie Matenopoulos. MTV2 then relaunched the show for two seasons in 2006 and 2007, with the network then ordering a pilot for a reboot in 2015 that did not go to series.
“Happy to once again be working with Viacom and MTV on a fan favorite like ‘Celebrity Deathmatch’ and to continue our success together,” said Ice Cube.
Ice Cube has already successfully brought back “Hollywood Squares” as “Hip Hop Squares” and now he’s giving us “Celebrity Deathmatch.”
