Snoop Dogg is joining the ranks of Jay Leno and David Letterman with his own late night talk show.
The Doggfather will host “Dogg After Dark,”Â a new jam-packed weekly variety talk show shot at Los Angeles hotspot The Kress on Hollywood Boulevard. “Dogg After Dark”Â will bring Snoop’s Doggystyle swagger to the airwaves with raw interviews with A-list celebrities and musicians, hilarious sketch-comedy segments, and musical performances from the hottest artists. The show will air every Tuesday night for seven weeks and feature Snoop’s own in-house band, the Snoopadelics.
The TV program is part of an unprecedented deal with MTV that also provides Snoop’s new album, Malice in Wonderland, with global distribution, marketing, and promotion. The album will feature production from Dr. Dre and Pharrell and is scheduled to be released later this year. In addition, songs from the Cali rapper’s impressive catalogue of hits will be released on MTV’s Rock Band music video game platform.
“Dogg After Dark” premieres Tuesday, Feb. 17, at 9 p.m. on MTV.
