Oh wow! Check out the Nick Cannon.
Dude is getting ready to make another big move. He’s bringing back “Soul Train.”
Yep, you read that correctly. At this weekend’s American Black Film Festival in South Beach, Cannon revealed that he recently struck a deal to bring the musical variety show to NBC, via his production company NCredible Entertainment.
“One of the things I’m the most excited about, and we’re just now starting to talk about it is the re-launch of Soul Train and that coming back,” Cannon told theGrio’s Chris Witherspoon. “It means so much for our culture. It truly is something that to be able to bring through my deal at NBC Universal is that in itself is kind of taking it to the next level for where the brand began. I’m excited about that.”
Last year it was reported that Cannon inked a first-look production deal with NBC to develop scripted and unscripted programming for the network.
