DJ Khaled has teased a new TV show focused on the sport of golf with the help of his good friends Diddy and actor Mark Wahlberg.
The We The Best boss took to Instagram on Tuesday (March 14) with a series of videos showing himself and Puff getting in a game of golf while a camera crew captures footage for the upcoming series.
In one clip, Khaled takes a big swing as The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy” plays in the background, while Diddy enthusiastically bigs up the Miami mogul’s golf game.
In another video, the Bad Boy boss reveals they’ve already shot the pilot episode of Khaled’s new golf show, and that there’s a bidding war for the rights to the series.
In addition to getting Puff’s support, Khaled shared another post of him on a FaceTime call with Mark Wahlberg to discuss the venture.
“LETS GO GOLFING TV SHOW it’s in works. my team said KHALED it’s biding war for the show,” Khaled wrote on Instagram. “I WIILL TAKE YOU IN THE WORLD OF GOLF FROM MY VIEW AND HOW WE DO, AND THEN ITS GETS EVEN MORE AMZING ON THE SHOW TO SEE WHAT HAPPMS AFTER WE PLAY GOLF!”
He added: “BE BE READY ! #LETSGOGOLFING @wethebest FILMS @markwahlberg let’s pick the best network that sees the VISION!”

DJ Khaled added more fuel to the fire with another IG post that showed him on a business call and describing his show as “the next billion-dollar idea.”
Khaled’s love for golf runs deep as this isn’t the first time he’s hit the links. Earlier this year, the 47-year-old made headlines when he almost crashed a golf cart while on vacation in the Bahamas.
In a clip shared online, Khaled was sitting behind the wheel while stuck in some sand. Someone came to help push the cart out, after which the God Did hitmaker reversed into another pile of sand before pulling off and almost crashing again.
That didn’t stop Khaled from brushing off his blunder and delivering one of his trademark motivational speeches, though.
“In life there’s roadblocks. Don’t let nothing stop you cause we ain’t stopping, we gonna keep going,” he said into the camera after parking next to another golf cart he almost hit.
DJ Khaled’s new golf show isn’t the only project he’s pitched in the TV/film space as he previously proposed shooting a buddy film starring himself and Drake to Mark Wahlberg.
“I’m telling you now, you get Khaled and Drake to do a movie together, it’s game over,” Khaled said on a FaceTime call, to which Wahlberg replied: “I see. We should have a meeting. I got that movie with me and Kevin Hart coming out right after. We should just pitch an idea to Netflix.”
DJ Khaled liked the idea, but claimed that Wahlberg and Hart’s on-screen chemistry in Me Time can’t hold a candle to his and Drake’s.
“You know I got love for you and Kevin Hart, but it ain’t no muthafucking Khaled and Drake!” he joked. “I know you and Kevin Hart got a movie, but Khaled and Drake?!”
Wahlberg replied: “But listen, we should pitch the movie with the idea, let’s set it up and hire a writer and go bang bang. I got you.”
