Snoop Dogg is taking on a regular TV gig that may not be exactly what fans of the rapper would expect. Snoop will be the host of the game show “The Joker’s Wild,” which is being updated by TBS.
The show will be executive produced by Snoop along with Michael Strahan.
“When you hear the words ‘game show host,’ Snoop Dogg probably isn’t the first name to pop into your head,” said Michael Bloom, senior vice president of unscripted series and specials for TNT and TBS. “But it turns out he is a great fit that brings passion to this game show with a laid-back vibe to the casino-inspired craziness surrounding him. This is a labor of love for Snoop Dogg and Michael Strahan, and a perfect addition to TBS’s comedy lineup.”
Snoop considered “The Joker’s Wild” to be his favorite game show when he was growing up, according to a TBS announcement released today. Click here to read the full announcement.
