Ice Cube And VH1 Bringing Hip-Hop Version Of Hollywood Squares To TV!!
Ice Cube and VH1 have partnered for a hip-hop version of Hollywood Squares!! “Hip-Hop Squares is going to be fun and spontaneous; unlike typical game shows, viewers should never know what’s going to happen next,” said Cube. “When VH1 asked us to join the producing team, we jumped aboard as we have had success with VH1, and we love their team, excitement and commitment to the show.”
Hollywood Squares featured two contestants playing tic-tac-toe to win cash and prizes. The board for the game was a 3 × 3 vertical stack of open-faced cubes, each occupied by a celebrity seated at a desk and facing the contestants. The stars were asked questions by the host, and the contestants judged the truth of their answers to gain squares in the right pattern to win the game.
The new version of the show will feature celebrity contestants who will “match wits and test their pop culture knowledge with the superstar squares, featuring the biggest names in hip hop, comedy and entertainment,” according to Deadline.com.
Hip-Hop Squares will premiere in the fall.
