"Punk'd is one of MTV's most iconic franchises," Chance the Rapper said in a statement Friday. "I grew up watching this show and it's surreal to be in the driver's seat this time around on Quibi."

The original version of Punk'd was created by Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg.

Kutcher hosted the series 2003-07. It was briefly revived in 2012 and again in 2015, with rotating guest hosts.
