Someone call Judge Mills Lane: MTV2 has ordered a pilot for a new version of its parent network’s classic Celebrity Deathmatch. The network says the new Celebrity Deathmatch will be a “reimagined” version of the original that draws inspiration from our current “world of social media and hourly Twitter wars.” Finally, we’ll get to see what Suey Park versus Stephen Colbert looks like in Claymation form! The Deathmatch reboot is just one of three new series MTV2 announced today; the others are a Charlemagne tha God talk show and Kingin’ With Tyga, a Jackass-style adventure show that follows the antics of America’s favorite ephebophile.
