It was confirmed today that Disney XD has ordered “Walk the Prank,” a series that blends comedic storytelling with hidden camera reality pranks. It was announced today by Adam Bonnett, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide. Created by Adam Small (“MAD TV,” “Jamie Kennedy Experiment”) and Trevor Moore (“Whitest Kids U Know”), “Walk the Prank” will begin production in January and is scheduled to premiere in 2016.
“We are confident that Adam and Trevor will give Disney XD one-of-a-kind storytelling and unscripted surprises with the pranks,” said Bonnett. “We are lucky to be in business with these creators and ready to ‘Walk the Prank’ with them!”
Shot in a cinema vert style, the single-camera series follows a team of practical jokesters who create hilarious over-the-top pranks for an online hidden camera show.
The show is expected to be a mix of former Disney talent, mixed in with a few new faces. The series stars newcomers Cody Veith (“Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn”) 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 Wyndham (“The Wesley’s”) as Will, Dusty’s uncle. More information on the casting, premiere dates and other information from the production is expected to be released over the next few months.
