Disney XD is showing further commitment to the prank series genre with an order for hidden-camera comedy Walk the Prank.
Created by Adam Small, of Mad TV and Jamie Kennedy Experiment fame, and Whitest Kids U Know‘s Trevor Moore, Walk the Prank is shot in a cinema verité style, and the single-camera series follows a team of practical jokers who create over-the-top pranks for an online hidden-camera show.
Walk the Prank stars newcomers Cody Veith (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, pictured) as Chance, Bryce Gheisar (Dream Chasers) as Herman, Jillian Shae Spaeder (Theatre and Me’s the Bully) as Bailey, Brandon Severs (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn) as Dusty and Tobie Windham (The Wesley’s) as Will, Dusty’s uncle.
The series starts production in January and is slated to premiere on the boy-skewing channel next year.
Earlier this year, Disney XD commissioned marblemedia and Essential 11 to produce hidden-camera show Made Up, which follows teens who pull pranks on unsuspecting family members.
