NEW YORK (AP) - MTV is unplugging again. The cable music network is bringing back the "Unplugged" series, in which artists perform acoustic versions of their hits in front of a studio audience.

"Unplugged" first became popular in the early '90s, with performances by Nirvana, 10,000 Maniacs and Eric Clapton, among others. The new shows are scheduled to begin airing at 8 p.m. ET Aug. 9 on MTV2, starting with R.E.M.

Future episodes will feature Lauryn Hill, Staind and Shakira. Once the shows have aired on MTV2, they will rerun on MTV, the network announced Saturday.
