"Nick Cannon Presents Wild N Out" originally aired on MTV from 2005-2007, featuring two teams of hot, up-and-coming comics and celebrity guests who go head-to-head in a series of "improv battles." The Cannon created, produced and hosted show became one of MTV's highest rated shows in the network's history, airing new episodes for four consecutive seasons with a-list guests that included Tyra Banks, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Lil' Wayne, Serena Williams and more.

"I get asked every day when 'Wild 'N Out' will be back," says Nick Cannon, CEO of NCredible Entertainment.

"Building on our long-standing relationship with Nick Cannon, we are ecstatic to welcome his creative genius back to the MTV family," said Paul Ricci, Senior Vice President of Programming and Production for MTV2. "The re-mixed Wild 'N Out will deliver a high-energy, clever and hilarious addition to MTV2's original programming line-up."

Cannon's other film credits include Sundance Film Festival featured films "Weapons," "American Son," and the psychological thriller, "The Killing Room."
