The veteran rapper signed a deal with MTV which includes him executive producing a 12-episode reboot of the daredevil game show.
“I am excited to kick off my partnership with MTV, starting with the relaunch of Fear Factor, which will be even more insane and ludicrous than what you remember,” stated Luda. “This will be the first of many great projects together.”
Beginning in 2001, the original Fear Factor ran on NBC for six seasons and was hosted by comedian Joe Rogan.
The show was revived for one season in 2011.
Ludacris’ edition of Fear Factor will premiere May 30 at 10 pm on MTV.
