in the day, “Beach House” attracted A-listers such as Reese
Witherspoon, Beyonce and Mark Wahlberg.”MTV Beach House” will play out this summer via on-air
interstitials, plus behind-the-scenes content available for the
entire month of June across Viacom’s portfolio of social and

we last opened the MTV Beach House as the ultimate summer
hangout for our audience 14 years ago. We’re thrilled to partner
with Mtn Dew Spiked Lemonade to bring back the Beach House in a
totally updated way that speaks to a new generation of digitally
native fans,” said Matthew Newcomb, vice president of integrated
