We are beyond excited to see All Pro Tight End Jason Witten and Cari Champion of ESPN deliver what can only be the most awesome sports prank every done on Disney Channel. You will be able to watch this episode titled “Walk the Prank: NFL Edition” on September 2nd. Being Cowboy fans, we just love that we get to see Jason doing something fun and Cari Champion who is an anchor on SportsCenter getting in on the action.
An innovative new format that blends scripted comedy with real hidden-camera pranks, “Walk the Prank” follows a team of practical jokesters who create hilarious over-the-top pranks for an online hidden camera show of the same name.
The series showcases the natural comedic talent and improvisational skills of new young stars including Cody Veith (“Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn”) as the cool, confident Chance, Bryce Gheisar (“A Dog’s Purpose”) as Chance’s younger brother Herman, Jillian Shea Spaeder (“Theatre and Me’s the Bully”) as the tech-savvy Bailey, Brandon Severs (“The Neighbors”) as Chance’s best friend Dusty, and Tobie Windham (“The Wesley’s”) as Will, Dusty’s uncle.
The scripted storylines center on the four kids’ antics in school and at home, which provide a source of inspiration for their pranks. The real and outlandish hidden-camera pranks, seen throughout each episode, capture genuine reactions from unsuspecting strangers.
If this goes over successfully, we all wouldn’t mind seeing an version of this with all of the major sports. What do you think the prank is? How well do you think Jason does at pulling it off? Cari is already on television so I see her being able to hold her part really well. Tune in September 2nd to find out.
