ABC Orders Hidden Camera Comedy Series ‘The Prank Panel’

Remember hidden camera comedy reality series like Totally Hidden Video, Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, Jackass, and the granddaddy of them all, Candid Camera? ABC is hoping to find a new generation of fans (and the old ones too!) in The Prank Panel, a new series it just ordered in the genre that “lets everyday people pitch pranks targeting family members, friends and co-workers to a panel of the world’s greatest pranksters.”

The logline: Johnny Knoxville (Jackass), Eric Andre (The Eric Andre Show) and Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe (Precious) form the all-star panel of “pranxperts,” taking viewers behind the scenes as they help to plot and plan elaborate and diabolical schemes. The panelists serve as mentors and saboteurs, with celebrity guests sometimes joining the fun.

The Prank Panel, which will air on ABC at an undisclosed date in 2023, is produced by KIMMELOT and ITV America. The executive producers include Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser; Jimmy Kimmel and Scott Lonker for KIMMELOT; Johnny Knoxville and Eric Andre; and Jordana Hochman, Bernie Schaeffer and Vin Rubino for ITV America.

Given the considerable audience erosion for the veteran comedy The Goldbergs out of The Conners in the Wednesday 8:30 p.m. ET half-hour this season, that could be a potential time period option for The Prank Panel.

The number of episodes ordered for The Prank Panel has not been confirmed.
