Magic Johnson producing street basketball reality TV show for MTV.
Magic Johnson and MTV will produce Who’s Got Game, a show “documenting the lives of 12 street basketball players competing for fame and a $100,000 prize,” USA TODAY reports. Magic will only appear in some episodes of the show, which will air for 10 weeks this summer and include competitions and the elimination of one player each week. “Contestants will be limited to men over 18, but Johnson said he would consider a new version with women if the show succeeds,” according to the paper.
