Disney XD has ordered a second season of “Walk the Prank,” its broadly-appealing hit series that blends scripted comedy with real hidden-camera pranks. The series has reached 35.4 million viewers including 13.2 million Kids 6-14 and 6.3 million Boys 6-14 on Disney XD and Disney Channel, with an additional 47 million viewer engagements delivered across VOD and digital platforms including the Disney XD app and Disney XD’s YouTube channel. The stars of “Walk the Prank,” Cody Veith, Bryce Gheisar, Jillian Shea Spaeder, Brandon Severs and Tobie Windham, are set to return for the second season to prank more unsuspecting bystanders with the series’ elaborate, story-driven pranks. Production will resume this fall.
“Walk the Prank” is also Disney XD’s No. 1 series on VOD (6.6 million viewer engagements) and ranks as the No. 1 series in unique visitors on the Disney XD app (2.6 million video starts by 425,000 unique visitors). Clips from the series have amassed over 38 million total views launch to date on Disney XD’s YouTube channel.
The scripted portion of the series centers on the everyday adventures of a tight-knit foursome, brothers Chance and Herman and their best friends Bailey and Dusty, which serve as a source of inspiration for the team’s unscripted and creative over-the-top practical jokes. The good-natured pranks capture genuine and hilarious reactions for the group’s online hidden-camera show.
“Walk the Prank” was created and executive produced by Adam Small (“Mad TV”) and Trevor Moore (“Whitest Kids U Know”). The series is from Horizon Productions and carries a TV-Y7 parental guideline.
