Two hip-hop legends are collaborating, as Fat Joe will host a new TV show for Starz executive produced by Sean “Diddy” Combs.

SpringHill’s studio division, founded by LeBron James and Maverick Carter, will also produce the pilot.

“We’re about to create the biggest and most culturally relevant series on television,” Joe said in a statement. “With Puff, LeBron, the incredible team at Starz and myself teaming up, you have a dream team that is guaranteed to produce TV gold.”

“Hosting a show has always been a dream of mine and I’m thankful for everyone who helped make it a reality,” the five-time Grammy nominee continued. “I promise you that we’re going to push the envelope, deliver compelling interviews and provide pure entertainment.”

“I’m excited to partner with Starz and bring these cultural giants together to create the No. 1 show on television,” Diddy added. “Fat Joe is a very authentic and respected voice in the culture that deserves a platform to bring these important conversations to a global audience on a major network.”

Joe served as a guest host for The Wendy Williams Show and will host the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards, airing October 4.
