Just In: Nelly Gambles Career On Vegas Variety Show!


According to We Party Fresh, Nelly is turning his attention away from music and putting all his chips on a Las Vegas variety TV show.

“Nelly’s Night in Vegas” is being pitched to networks as a weekly series that would feature Nelly and celebrity guests. He is working with NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” producer 25/7 Prods. on the effort.

Producers have already worked out a deal with Planet Hollywood to shoot the weekly talk show-variety hybrid at the hotel and casino, according to Variety.

Nelly would have his own sidekick and house band, as well as guests and performances. And what would a Vegas show be if it didn’t include an in-studio gaming element?

“I was thinking about what was missing on TV, and when this idea came about, it made sense for me,” said the rapper. “We do have talk shows, but no one’s speaking from the pop culture perspective. Let’s get a little more pop, a little more edge, a little bit younger, and not look like you’re sitting in the principal’s office. As a performer, that’s the type of show you look forward to going on.”
