Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg Land Their Very Own Dinner Party TV Series
The highlight of this week (so far) has almost definitely arrived: Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg are coming to VH1 this fall with their own TV series, which will be all about how to throw a dank dinner party.
The show's working title is "Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party," Variety reports. In their weekly series, Stewart and Snoop will sup with various celebrity guests.
So, what will go down on what will surely be the best show of the year?
As Stewart told Variety, "At our dinner party, we will exemplify America's fascination with food, entertaining, and celebrity. 'Martha & Snoop's Dinner Party' will redesign the traditional food competition shows in a new, different, and very funny way.”
It's a bit unclear whether this show will be more talk-driven, or stadium kitchen oriented, a la "Iron Chef," "Chopped," and "Cutthroat Kitchen." (That latter formula has, after all, worked some serious magic for Food Network.) But it seems safe to say that either way, this joint will be unlike anything the world has seen before.
“My homegirl Martha and I have a special bond that goes back,” Snoop told "Variety." “We’re gonna be cooking, drinking, and having a good time with our exclusive friends. Can't wait for you to see how we roll together!”
These two do, indeed, go way back. Snoop's been on Stewart's show a couple of times; once, they made mashed potatoes. And of course, Snoop dropped by on another occasion to make what we can only assume is a specialty of his: brownies.
Stewart's cool factor has steadily been on the rise for a long time, especially after her appearance at Comedy Central’s roast of Justin Bieber (which, "Variety" notes, Snoop also participated in). But this year, especially, is shaping up well: her cameo in "Bad Moms" was easily one of the film’s most memorable gambits, as she showed up to a rager with some delicious looking Jello shots. (With any luck, her new show will reveal the recipe, along with some elevated gin-and-juice concoctions.)
Hopefully, the show will fully embrace its corny potential by giving each episode a theme, because a quick look through some of Snoop’s greatest hits reveals that he’s spent most of his career coming up with fantastic fodder for episode titles. Some ideas to get the brainstorming started: "Drop the Pot Roast Like It’s Hot," "Just Dippin' (Fondue)," "Peaches N Cream N Other Fine Desserts," and "California Roll: Make Sushi a G Thang."
