VH1 Orders Dating Series Starring Rapper The Game
VH1 is staying in business with The Game.
The network has greenlit She’s Got Game, another show starring the rapper, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor. The hourlong weekly show will follow Taylor as he sets out to find love, enlisting the help of his celeb friends. Each one will select a young woman to accompany the platinum-selling artist on his national tour this summer.
It's the second project on which VH1 has partnered with Taylor. The first was Marrying The Game, a reality series that followed the star's relationship with his now ex-fiancé Tiffney Cambridge. The show wrapped its third and final season July 2014.
“Relationships are hard, and The Game knows that working in the entertainment business makes it even harder,” said VH1's executive vp of original programming and production Susan Levison. “In this series, he gets to try a different strategy, taking the advice and suggestions of the friends who know him best. We can't wait to go on this adventure with The Game as he searches for the woman that could ultimately be his match.”
The 10-episode series is slated to premiere summer 2015, and is executive produced by 51 Minds’ Christian Sarabia and Angela Aguilera. Taylor also serves as an executive producer. For VH1, the series is executive produced by Levison, Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly, Fernando Mills and Tricia Biggio.
