Nick Cannon Hosting Style’s Reboot of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous
Nick Cannon is becoming a force to be reckoned with in the hosting world.
Host of America's Got Talent and Wild N' Out, Nick is now heading over to the Style Network, since he has been tapped to serve as host on Style's Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, The Hollywood Reporter reports.
Back in February, Style revived Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, which was originally hosted by Robin Leach in the 1980s and '90s, bringing Nick up to historical levels, as he will host and executive produce the show.
"Nick is both aspirational and accessible — key qualities of the Style brand. He is extremely talented with a grounded personality and style that a wide-range of viewers have come to appreciate and respect. Nick's comedic and down-to-earth perspective on the opulence of the wealthy makes him the ideal host as we reinvent this pop culture classic," Style Media president Salaam Coleman Smith said. "With Nick's humorous insight, Style will give viewers front-row access to how today's wealthy live, paying homage to the originalLifestyles in a fresh, fun and irreverent way.
The reboot will start production in the fall and will take America into the homes of the famous — think Cribs, but the one the started it all.
"To be a part of Style's reimagination of this iconic show and follow in the footsteps of the legendary Robin Leach is a dream come true," Cannon said. "Even though I am fortunate to have certain luxuries, sometimes, I am even amazed by what people with money have and do. I want to remind people that just because you might be rich and famous, it doesn't mean you have to take yourself too seriously."
A premiere date for Lifestyles has not yet been announced.
