Hollywood Squares Meets Hip-Hop, as Ice Cube Teams With VH1 on Revival

“Yo, stars!”

Game-show reboot fever has finally looped back around to Hollywood Squares, which is being developed with a hip-hop sensibility by Ice Cube and VH1.

On the heels of ABC overhauling its summertime Sunday lineup into a “Fun & Games” fest — pairing Celebrity Family Feud with new-but-faithful versions of $100,000 Pyramid and Match Game — VH1 is partnering with the rapper/record producer/actor on Hip-Hop Squares, in which the giant tic-tac-toe board is populated with “the biggest names in hip-hop, comedy and entertainment,” The Hollywood Reporter reports.

VH1 is said to have ordered at least 20 episodes of the series, to premiere this fall. A host was not immediately announced.

    Wasn’t there a version of “Hip Hop Squares” years ago on MTV2? This seems like a revival since it’ll be on VH1.

    It can be Hollywood Squares if it has either Tom Bergeron or Peter Marshall.
