Martha Stewart & Snoop Dogg to Star as Judges on New Food Competition Special for Halloween on Peacock TV
Fans who loved seeing Snoop Dog and Martha Stewart working together will be thrilled to hear that the duo will be pairing up for a new Peacock TV show. This time they’ll be judging bakers!
This week's reports revealed that Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg would pair up again on a new food show. On Wednesday, BuzzFeed and Peacock announced that the duo would be reuniting for a baking show.
The baking competition will be titled “Snoop and Martha's Very Tasty Halloween” in honor of the upcoming holiday. The Peacock TV show is set to premiere on October 14, 2021.

Teams with three bakers each will battle it out to bake twelve square-foot Halloween-themed baked goods on the new show. These confections will need to be “immersive experiences,” according to UPI.
The publication also revealed that each team would need to use fear as inspiration for their concepts. Dogg, 49, and Stewart, 80, will be the judges along with Tasty food content creator and Chef Alvin Zhou.

The hour-long special will be produced by Magical Elves, BuzzFeed Studios, and Snoopadelic Films. The show is set to be BuzzFeed's very first development deal and unscripted program with Peacock.
Besides starring on the show as judges, Stewart and Dogg will also serve as executive producers. Spooky images of the duo and Zhou sitting in a Halloween-themed set have also been released.
“Snoop and Martha's Very Tasty Halloween” isn’t the only show that the two stars have hosted as a duo. On VH1, Dogg and Stewart used to host “Martha and Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party” in 2016.
The rapper and television personality were part of Comedy Central’s Roast of Justin Bieber during the same year. They’ve also appeared together in several commercials.
This year, they were honored to co-host the Puppy Bowl, and in 2017 they co-presented the MTV Movie and TV Awards. The pair’s friendship started in 2008 when the rapper was on “The Martha Stewart Show.”
During a previous “Today” show interview, Stewart recalled how weird she and Dogg were on their cooking show, and he agreed. The pair might’ve been an unlikely union, but they managed to fit together.
The rapper confessed at the time that cooking with Stewart just seemed like the right “space to be in.” The "Gin and Juice" vocalist’s fans might’ve been surprised to see him teaming up with Stewart, but he wasn’t.
He once explained that he’d always kept an open mind about the boundaries he could break. Dogg said he never limited himself to what he could do, and it definitely shows!
