MTV will premiere the comedic reality, BLOWIN′ UP on Tuesday, May 16 at 10:30PM (ET/PT). Each half-hour episode will follow the hilarious Jamie Kennedy and his sidekick, Stu Stone, as they attempt to fulfill their lifelong dream of Hip-Hop superstardom.
The duo set out on an unstoppable and brilliantly funny mission to take on the music industry by storm. Driven by their own original music, which they write, record and perform together, Jamie and Stu knock on every door meeting with top music executives and seeking advice from Hip-Hop′s biggest stars, only to discover, while rappers have no problem breaking into acting, it isn′t so simple the other way around. Throughout their journey, Jamie and Stu encounter Three 6 Mafia, Jason Biggs, Russell Simmons, Bow Wow, Bob Saget, Paul Wall, George Lucas, Ice-T, Mena Suvari, DJ AM, Tara Reid, Method Man, Mike Jones, Ed McMahon and other celebrity talent.
BLOWIN′ UP is pure comedy, as Jamie and Stu put their best foot forward in search of music platinum," said Lois Curren, Executive Vice President, Entertainment and Programming, MTV. "Their unstoppable talent and creativity will shine through in each episode as we showcase original music throughout the season."
"MTV is such a great place for me and my show BLOWIN′ UP," said Jamie Kennedy. "They really understand my love of rap and hip hop in general. They have helped create a funny show to illustrate my journey into the music business and I couldn′t be happier."
Unsure how to break in to the rap game, viewers in the debut episode will see Jamie and Stu hook up with Method Man who offers some friendly advice on how to get noticed in the hip-hop world. Method Man suggests they get a hot guest appearance from a "dope ass rapper" on their first single. Jamie calls in some favors and scores none other than Bob Saget to drop a verse.
