*MTV2, MTV’s sibling network, today announced a deal with Nick Cannon and his NCredible Entertainment to bring back his successful sketch comedy and improv series “Nick Cannon Present’s Wild ‘N Out” specifically for the MTV2 audience.
The revamped version is set to debut in 2013 and the search is on for the next generation of comedic stars. Aspiring comedians can head to http://NCredible.com for casting and open audition information. Some vets from the original series are also set to return.
“Nick Cannon Presents Wild N Out” originally aired on MTV from 2005-2007, featuring two teams of hot, up-and-coming comics and celebrity guests who go head-to-head in a series of “improv battles.” The Cannon created, produced and hosted series became one of MTV’s highest rated shows in the network’s history, airing new episodes for four consecutive seasons with a-list guests that included Tyra Banks, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Lil’ Wayne, Serena Williams and more.
“I get asked every day when ‘Wild ‘N Out’ will be back,” says Cannon. “I’m thrilled to announce that the show will be making its long awaited return very soon – bigger and better. With our show’s original cast, everyone from Kevin Hart to Katt Williams, Affion Crocckett and Taran Killam becoming household names, I am looking forward to working with MTV2 as we work to introduce the biggest comedic stars of tomorrow with the return of Wild ‘N Out.”
