VH1 is gearing up more celebrity-driven shows, featuring comedienne Margaret Cho, rap impresario Luther Campbell and Hulk Hogan’s daughter, Brooke.
The network’s “celeb-reality” programming strategy has pushed the network into the top ranks among cable networks during the first quarter, and VH1 is counting in the new shows to continue its momentum.
“The Cho Show” follows the former “All American Girl” star and her eccentric entourage and family. VH1 has ordered seven half-hour episodes from Crossroads Television.
“Luke’s Parental Advisory” features Mr. Campbell, former leader of the raunchy rap group 2 Live Crew, who is now a suburban father, a fiancée and CEO of an adult entertainment business. VH1 has ordered eight 30-minute episodes from Pink Sneakers Productions.
“Brooke Hogan Knows Best” follows four years of “Hogan Knows Best,” as the wrestling star’s daughter begins life on her own in Miami. VH1 has ordered 10 30-minute episodes from Pink Sneakers.
VH1 is also putting the former “Flavor of Love” contestant known as New York in a new series called “New York Goes to Hollywood.” The network has ordered 10 30-minute episodes from Mindless Entertainment and 51 Pictures.
VH1 will also feature James Brown and Elton John in episodes of “Rock Docs,” and Snoop Dogg will appear in an installment of “VH1 Storytellers.”
