MTV Reviving Celebrity Deathmatch with Ice Cube Starring & Producing

A

Today we add to the list of revivals Celebrity Deathmatch, MTV's hit claymation wrestling franchise that pits stop-motion famous people against other stop-motion famous people. The series will be shopped around to networks, including streaming services. "Celebrity Deathmatch" expands Ice Cube's long-standing relationship with the MTV family, with Cube Vision now producing "Hip Hop Squares" for MTV sister brand VH1. The Real World was the first of these reboots from MTV Studios and landed a new home at Facebook Watch.

Announced by MTV Studios, this reimagining of the show is being executive produced by Ice Cube and his production company Cube Vision, along with series creator Eric Fogel. Also executive producing is Jeff Kwatinetz and Ben Hurwitz of Cube Vision. The series will feature weekly installments for an SVOD or network partner in 2019. MTV are pushing several of their now-vintage titles for similar pickups, including Daria, Aeon Flux and Made.

This won't be Ice Cube's first connection to Celebrity Deathmatch, either. "Deathmatch was the meme before memes", says McCarthy, continuing that the show "remains a hot topic on social media and will be a smart, amusing way to tackle the over-the-top rhetoric of today's pop culture where it belongs - in the wrestling ring".
