Get ready people: VH1 is preparing to team up Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart to co-present a new series called ‘Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party’, in what must qualify as the most unlikely hosting partnership in TV history.

The new series, due to air in the autumn and in which the duo will throw dinner parties for their celebrity friends. According to a statement from VH1, it promises to be a “half-baked evening of cocktails, cooking, conversation and fun where nothing is off limits.”

If you can’t see the logic behind this pairing at first glance – and, to be fair, we don’t blame you if you don’t! – Snoop and Stewart actually go back a ways. They both appeared on ABC’s ‘$100,000 Pyramid’ game show quite recently, and both also participated in the Comedy Central roast of Justin Bieber early in 2015. The rapper has also been a guest on Martha’s radio talk show.
