MTV plans three new series
The TV network that brought you “The Osbournes” is banking on Snoop Dogg as a variety host, a practical-joking Ashton Kutcher and surfer girls.
MTV’s new series for the spring and summer include “Doggy Fizzle Televizzle,” the rapper’s variety show. A pilot that aired in December featured Snoop Dogg working as a substitute teacher and at a fast-food restaurant’s drive-through.
Kutcher (“That ‘70s Show”) will be the host of a comedy show where he plays practical jokes on celebrity friends, while the reality series “Surf Girls” will follow amateur surfers competing for a sponsorship deal at some of the world’s hottest surfing spots.
