Variety.com reports that Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg will star in a new VH1 series. Yes, that is a real sentence you just read. Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party will feature the unlikely pair teaming up to throw a dinner party for their celebrity friends. According to VH1, it will be “for a half-baked evening of cooking, conversation and fun where nothing is off limits.”
“At our dinner party, we will exemplify America’s fascination with food, entertaining and celebrity. Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party will redesign the traditional food competition shows in a new, different and very funny way,” Stewart said in a statement.
The new dynamic duo recently appeared together on ABC’s 100,000 Pyramid and also participated in Justin Bieber‘s roast on Comedy Central. Snoop has also appeared on Stewart’s show.
“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!” Snoop Dogg said in a statement. The new series is scheduled to premiere in the fall.
According to Snoop’s production company’s website, the hip-hop star is also an executive producer of the upcoming scripted comedy “Mary + Jane” through his Merry Jane company for VH1 sibling MTV. The show is a single camera, half-hour comedy that follows two twenty-something best friends on their journey in Los Angeles as “ganjapreneurs”. The two run an all-female weed delivery service. Snoop, being the musical genius he is, also wrote and performs the show’s theme song.
This is big news for the cannabis and entertainment industries as separate entities as this is the first time a cannabis-based media company has partnered with a major television cable network. The show is set to premiere on Monday, September 5th at 10:30 pm so make sure to set your DVRs and join in for a wild ride.
