The CW Adds 'Barber Battle' w/ Cedric The Entertainer To Its Upcoming Slate Of New Series

The CW has announced its greenlit a new reality competition series titled Barber Battle, which will be hosted by Cedric the Entertainer.

Barber Battle will visit different barbershops across the country in each of the 10 ordered episodes. The most talented barbers from across the country will compete with their clippers to showcase their artistic hair-cutting abilities, with winners crowned the creators of the best cuts in town. 


Going beyond mere hairstyles, these amazing stylists use their scissors and clippers to create astonishing works of art ranging from portraits to landmarks to ballparks – all on someone’s head. Episodes will blend craft with comedy and will feature a winner each week. Judges, locations and contestants will be announced at a later date.

Cedric the Entertainer, who starred in a famous comedy movie franchise centered around a barbershop, will not only host, but will also serve as executive producer, along with Mark Efman (Charlemagne & Friends, A&E Biographies).

No ETA on when this new series will debut.

I’ve got the best barber for your show. Not only is he a fantastic owner operator and master barber but he will bring ratings to your show. The entire 10th mountain division US military would be watching and rooting him on. Check him out and invite this barber to battle. Xo
