According to VIBE.com, multi-hyphenate Nick Cannon is looking to resurrect the longstanding variety show Soul Train for a younger generation. The site reports:
“Trusted sources tell VIBE that Nick Cannon is rubbing his jaws of life over the Soul Train franchise, as he negotiates a multi-million dollar deal for complete rights to the urban music variety show.
The source says that deal is still in the works, however, the NCredible CEO plans to revive the show in a modern-day format, with the modern stars like The-Dream or Meek Mill commanding Soul Train dance lines.”
Cannon is already prepping the return of his hit MTV Series Wild N’ Out with some familiar faces such as Deray Davis and Mikey Day, as well as a few newcomers.
Soul Train ran from 1971 to 2006, showcasing an array of talented acts and the latest dance moves.
