Untitled Major League Baseball Series (premieres April 2014): This new series will launch a multi-year programming partnership between MTV and the MLB, with the weekly show moving beyond game analysis, stats and highlights to showcase MLB athletes off the field, spotlighting the stars' personalities and passions through a series of player interviews and features, in addition to celebrity appearances.

"Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out" (premieres summer 2014): "Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out" mixes lightning fast comedic improv, head-to head competition and cutting edge entertainment that's more rap battle than comedic stage.
