Keke Palmer and Joel Kim Booster to Host ‘Singled Out’ Reboot at Quibi

Short-form version of the dating show to debut in 2020

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.
