VH1, in partnership with Sequential Brands Group, MERRY JANE and 495 Productions, today announced a new weekly series featuring Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg teaming together to throw a dinner party that will be the hottest ticket in town. Each will invite celebrity friends over for a half-baked evening of cocktails, cooking, conversation, and fun where nothing is off limits. Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party will premiere this Fall on VH1.
The unlikely pair, who most recently were on ABC’s 100,000 Pyramid, have quite a storied history that includes joint appearances on Martha’s talk show and the famed Justin Bieber Comedy Central Roast among others. Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party marks their first co-starring project.
The show was created and is executive produced by Stewart & Kim Miller Olko for Sequential Brands Group (NASDAQ: SQBG), Snoop Dogg & Ted Chung for MERRY JANE and SallyAnn Salsano for 495 Productions. Nina L. Diaz, Trevor Rose, Paul Ricci, Fernando Mills and Paula Aranda will executive produce for VH1.
“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,” said Stewart.
“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!” said Snoop Dogg.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg, two of pop culture’s biggest icons,” said VH1 and Logo President Chris McCarthy. “Good parties are filled with fun, food and unexpected guests. Wait til you see what happens at ‘Martha and Snoop’s Dinner Party’; it will be unforgettable.”
