Disney XD will blend comedic storytelling with hidden camera reality pranks as part of its new series Walk the Prank, the network said Friday
The series, create by Adam Small (MAD TV, Jamie Kennedy Experiment) and Trevor Moore (Whitest Kids U Know), will begin production in January and is scheduled to premiere in 2016. The single-camera series follows a team of practical jokesters who create hilarious over-the-top pranks for an online hidden camera show.
"We are confident that Adam and Trevor will give Disney XD one-of-a-kind storytelling and unscripted surprises with the pranks," said Adam Bonnett, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide. "We are lucky to be in business with these creators and ready to 'Walk the Prank' with them!"
