Series information and cast
A new Disney XD live-action series, Walk the Prank is created, written and executive produced by Adam Small and Trevor Moore and hails from Horizon Productions. Small and Moore are also co-showrunners and directors of the show. The program has officially premiered on April 6, 2016, following a sneak preview which debuted on April Fool`s Day in 2016.
Real hidden-camera pranks is blended with scripted comedy in Walk the Prank. The cast includes feisty young stars Cody Veith (Chance), Bryce Gheisar (Chance`s younger brother Herman), Jillian Shea Spaeder (Bailey), Brandon Severs (Dusty) whose school and home antics inspire their outlandish pranks. Tobie Windham plays Will, Dusty`s uncle. The goal of these pranks is to elicit sincere reactions from unsuspecting ordinary adults.
Reviews and possibility of renewal
The single-camera comedy has a 6/10 IMDb rating, however, the reviewers don`t seem to be particularly impressed by Walk the Prank. The series doesn`t succeed in either being a compelling reality series, or a fun scripted comedy show, and is built completely around the concept of having fun at someone else`s expense. The pranks are elaborate and executed in a professional manner, but that`s the only positive aspect that everyone appears to agree on. Concerns have also been voiced regarding the use of prank videos online, which might lead young viewers try similar pranks off-screen. Whether or not the show has enough to attract a stable enough audience for it to be continued into the second season remains to be seen. Stay tuned for further information from Disney XD.
