VH1 has announced that after a ten year hiatus, they are bringing back Pop-Up Video. Co-Creator Woody Thompson is back on board as executive producer. The network has ordered 60 half hour episodes to start airing this fall. According to the Hollywood Reporter:
The reboot will remain faithful to the original concept of bubbles of true “info nuggets” strategically deployed over music videos for maximum irony. But this time Thompson and his team will also pop-up rap and hip-hop, a genre that was off limits for the original because it was the domain of sister network MTV.
I was always a fan of this show as a kid, but I’m worried this is going to confuse young viewers who have never actually seen music videos on a video music channel.
