“Hollywood Squares” has been a lot of things over the years . . . but you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who’d describe it as HIP-HOP. But that’s about to change. VH1 is developing a new version called “Hip-Hop Squares”.
It’ll debut this fall. ICE CUBE is an executive producer . . . and while there’s no word what celebrities are going to be on it yet, VH1 says you can expect, quote, “the biggest names in hip-hop, comedy, and entertainment.”
Naturally, the questions will probably have a hip-hop tilt . . . but the press release just says it’ll test contestants’ “pop culture knowledge.” There have been multiple versions of the show, but it’s been 12 years since the last one went off the air.
Actually looking forward to this!
