In a recent interview with The Grio at the 2013 American Black Film Festival in Miami, Nick Cannon revealed that he just struck a deal with NBC to bring back the hit variety show "Soul Train." 

From the Grio:

"One of the things I'm the most excited about, and we're just now starting to talk about it is the re-launch of Soul Train and that coming back," Cannon told theGrio's Chris Witherspoon. "It means so much for our culture. It truly is something that to be able to bring through my deal at NBC Universal is that in itself is kind of taking it to the next level for where the brand began. I'm excited about that."

When asked if Soul Train would air on NBC, Cannon responded "Yes, that's the plan."
