MTV announced new plans to revamp its popular series, Celebrity Deathmatch. According to the network, Ice Cube will executive produce the new revamped show along with the series’ creator Eric Fogel and Jeff Kwatinetz.
MTV released the following statement in their announcement.
“We’re excited to grow our partnership with Ice Cube and Cube Vision to reimagine this fan favorite,” President of MTV, VH1 and CMT Chris McCarthy said. “Deathmatch was the meme before memes, remains a hot topic on social media and will be a smart, funny way to tackle the over-the-top rhetoric of today’s pop culture where it belongs – in the wrestling ring.”
The revamped Celebrity Deathmatch will be released by MTV as a weekly series for an exclusive SVOD or premium broadcast in 2019.
