Keke Palmer and “Sunnyside” alum Joel Kim Booster will host the “Singled Out” reboot at Quibi, the company announced Friday.
The short-form series is described as a “reimagined” version of the popular ’90s dating show with a modern-day social media twist.
Per the announcement, “Singled Out” will “hook up a new generation of singles, of all genders and sexual preferences, seeking love in 20 bite-sized episodes. Reflective of today’s dating landscape, where everyone is connected, the series will bring online dating to life with a twist — the main dater is linked to the pool of diverse singles through social media.”
The reboot was first announced back in June as part of a larger deal between Quibi and MTV which also included 20 new 10-minute episodes of “Punk’d.” MTV Studios will produce the series.
“I am thrilled to be hosting ‘Singled Out,’” Palmer said in a statement. “To be able to reimagine this show for my generation and on a new platform is so exciting. Can’t wait for you guys to see what we have in store!”
The original version of “Singled Out” ran from 1995-1998. It was hosted by Chris Hardwick and Jenny McCarthy until 1997, and by Hardwick and Carmen Electra in 1997 and 1998.
