MTV Greenlights Three 6 Mafia Comedy Reality Series

The Oscar-winning hip-hop outfit will star in a reality show about their quest to establish themselves in Hollywood.

Three 6 Mafia, the rap group that won an Oscar for their contribution to the Hustle & Flow soundtrack, are about to get even more notoriety as they sign on to star in an MTV reality series about their quest to establish themselves as Hollywood players. Set to premiere in early 2007, Adventures in Hollyhood begins with Three 6 Mafia and their entourage leaving their hometown of Memphis, TN and heading to Hollywood. Throughout the series, viewers will watch the group — along with a cast of characters that includes some behind-the-scenes folks like personal assistant Big Treice, internet consultant Computer, and the group’s rap protege, Project Pat — try to capitalize on their fame while still keeping it real. Also helping keep it real: Co-executive producer, Ashton Kutcher.
