Facebook Watch has scored an unscripted series from Kim Kardashian West.
“Are You Kidding Me” is a 10-episode series, produced by Lionsgate, that features celebrities getting pranked by their kids. In the prank series, the kids will be in charge of pulling off pranks with the help of their parents — and their parents must do everything their children tell them to do.
“I know from firsthand experience that children are wise beyond their years and can come up with the craziest things, so imagine how funny it will be to see them make all the decisions,” Kardashian West said in a statement. “I’m delighted to be working with the Lionsgate and Facebook teams on this exciting new venture and invite viewers to witness their favorite celebrity parents get pranked when we launch the series on Facebook Watch.”
In addition to selecting members of the Facebook community to participate in pranking celebrities, the show will also crowdsource top prank ideas from the community.
This is the first series Lionsgate has produced for Watch. In addition to Kardashian West, the show’s executive producers include Jennifer O’Connell, Brian Tannenbaum, Peter M. Cohen, and Melissa Stokes. The partnership was negotiated by Brian Tannenbaum, SVP of Creative & Business Affairs, Alternative Programming on behalf of Lionsgate and Lance Klein of WME.
