Viacom-owned cable net VH1 has greenlit an unscripted culinary series featuring the unlikely pairing of lifestyle maven Martha Stewart and hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg.

The tentatively titled Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party (pictured) – slated to premiere this fall – will feature the stars as they invite celebrity friends for a “half-baked evening of cocktails, cooking and conversation.” The series is produced by Sequential Brands Group, Merry Jane and 495 Productions.

The series will mark the first co-starring project from the pair, who have previously featured on ABC’s 100,000 Pyramid and the Justin Bieber Comedy Central Roast.

Sequential Brands Group’s Stewart and Kim Miller Olko serve as creators and executive producers alongside Merry Jane’s Snoop Dogg and Ted Chung and 495 Productions’ SallyAnn Salsano. Nina L. Diaz, Trevor Rose, Paul Ricci, Fernando Mills and Paula Aranda will executive produce for VH1.

“At our dinner party, we will exemplify America’s fascination with food, entertaining and celebrity,” said Stewart in a statement. “Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party will redesign the traditional food competition shows in a new, different and very funny way.”
