I received an all expense paid trip from Disney to attend the #JungleBookEvent. The opinions expressed here are my own. I received no monetary compensation.
While in Los Angeles for the #JungleBookEvent recently, I also visited Paramount Studios to see a taping and meet the cast of Walk The Prank. Hysterical! That is the only way to describe this new show on Disney XD. I can’t even come up with enough words that describe it.
Walk The Prank is an innovative new show on Disney XD that blends scripted comedy with real hidden-camera pranks. The show follows a team of practical jokesters who create hilarious over-the-top pranks for an online hidden camera show.
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 series is from Horizon Productions and carries a TV-Y7 parental guideline.
Before heading to the set, we were thrilled to watch an episode which had us all cracking up. I can just picture families sitting together watching this show and all of their living rooms being filled with laughter! The Paramount lot is huge and when we were led to the Soundstage 19 to watch a taping of the new show, I noticed that some of my old favorites had been created on that very stage, including the movie “Ghost” and some of my favorite childhood television shows like “My Three Sons,” “That Girl,” and “Happy Days!” It was like walking into my past!
All I can say about visiting the set – OMG – What a hoot! Tobie Windham who plays Uncle Will had 25 bloggers laughing from the minute he walked into the room. His personality jumps right out at you. He is so animated and exciting to listen. All of the kids involved in the show are adorable and all work well together. Watching 4 young kids working and being professional while the taping was going on was amazing to see. When it comes to the episode we watch – I really really really have NO WORDS!
I don’t want to give away any of the pranks in tonight’s episode. All I will say is my favorite has to do with a robot. You’ll have to watch and let me know which one is your favorite! 8:30 p.m. on Disney XD.
