Cam Newton, the dynamic quarterback of the Carolina Panthers, can now add executive producer and television host to his already impressive resume.
Nickelodeon has announced that Newton will be executive producer and host of a new children’s show called “I Wanna Be.” The series will feature Cam helping kids achieve their dreams.
“Time in the spotlight has made me realize the importance of creating positive messages to inspire the next generation,” Newton said in the release. “I’m very passionate about mentoring young people, and this show will be the perfect opportunity to help talented kids get the chance to pursue their dreams.
“And to be able to do it all on Nickelodeon — a network I grew up watching — is extremely exciting.”
The 20-episode series is scheduled to air next season.
