Rob Dyrdek Ventures Into Uncharted Territory With New Xbox Comedy Series
Nick Cannon is about one hosting gig away from needing his own network, but he’s not the only MTV personality that’s spreading his seed across the ever-expanding world of entertainment. According to Deadline, “Fantasy Factory” ruler/”Ridiculousness” frontman/business mogul/skating pro Rob Dyrdek is trying his hand at something totally new and out of the box — literally. The man, who’s become so popular these days that he’s evenvoicing a cartoon version of himself, is set to executive produce a scripted half-hour comedy series for Xbox, because apparently, he loathes sleep.
The currently untitled series, which will follow the lives of four retired pro skaters living together in Los Angeles, comes on the heels of two other shows ordered by Xbox as part of a company initiative to turn the gaming console into a one-stop shop for entertainment. It’s no wonder why they brought a video game-obsessed skateboarding champ on board!
While we wait for more details to emerge about Rob’s involvement with the project, you can watch him when “Ridiculousness” returns to MTV January 2 at 10/9c on AND when the final season of “Fantasy Factory” begins January 16 at 11/10c.
