(FreshAsFrankie) Rapper Wiz Khalifa has landed his own weed-themed show on Snoop Dogg’s marijuana media platform.
The “Black and Yellow” hitmaker is fronting a new digital series which will combine elements of stunt show “Jackass” and fitness competition “American Ninja” Warrior for Merry Jane, a cannabis culture website.
“The series will include a strong supply of weed humor that only Wiz and his gang of celebrity friends can put together,” reads a press release.
Meanwhile, Snoop is executive producing a new all-female discussion show called “Queens of the Stoned Age,” which will bring together women from all walks of life to discuss hot topics like relationships, families, careers, politics, and sex.
Seth Rogen is also contributing new content to the Merry Jane line-up, in the form of new episodes of his ongoing series “Talking Buds,” on which different strains of marijuana are given their own personalities to explain its affects.
“Merry Jane has reached hundreds of millions of people across the globe, bringing cannabis related content to a mainstream audience,” co-founder Ted Chung writes in a statement. “By showcasing the realities of modern culture through insightful and engaging programming, Merry Jane will continue to lead the fight to remove stigmas around cannabis and push for full legalization.”
Snoop and Chung launched Merry Jane in 2015.
