Premiering in early 2020, the evolved and supercharged series will feature Catta-Preta's irreverent sense of humor and sharp point-of-view on the entertainment world. From the hottest new series, to the latest O-M-G reality tv moments, to the best viral videos, plus everything in between, Catta-Preta is a "souper" fan who will catch viewers up on what they've missed and offer hilarious commentary on the most talked about pop culture moments.
