VH1 and Ice Cube Revive “Hip Hop Squares”

VH1 and Ice Cube’s production company, Cube Vision, are partnering to bring Hip Hop Squares back to cable television. According The Hollywood Reporter from its sources, the network has ordered at least 20 episodes and the series is scheduled to resume this fall. Much like the original version, Hip Hop Squares has two contestants play a series of tic-tac-toe games  by earning squares based on whether they can correctly predict if the celebrities are giving right or wrong answers to trivia questions. The latest edition of the classic game show, originally developed by Merrill Heatter and Bob Quigley, first aired on MTV2 in 2012 with radio DJ Peter Rosenburg hosting the series for two seasons. Ice Cube will executive produce the show with Jesse Collins Entertainment, Jeff Kwatinetz’s The Firm and CBS Television Distribution.
