Celebrity Deathmatch

According to Variety, MTV is looking to bring back Celebrity Deathmatch. Series creator Eric Fogel will return to executive produce, with Ice Cube set to executive produce and star in the new take on the stop-motion animation series. Chris McCarthy, president of MTV, VH1 and CMT commented…

“We’re excited to grow our partnership with Ice Cube and Cube Vision to reimagine this fan favorite. ’Deathmatch’ was the meme before memes, remains a hot topic on social media and will be a smart, funny way to tackle the over-the-top rhetoric of today’s pop culture where it belongs – in the wrestling ring.”

Celebrity Deathmatch originally aired from 1998-2001 on MTV, presenting parodies of various celebrities as they engaged in brutal, no-holds barred wrestling matches.
