Lionsgate is bringing Kim Kardashian West’s nonfiction show You Kiddin’ Me to Facebook Watch, representing its first series for the social media network’s video platform.
The ten-episode series is inspired by Kardashian West’s family’s antics. In the comedic prank series, celebrities have to do everything their own children tell them to do. The kids prank their famous parents and the unsuspecting public. Members of the Facebook community will be chosen to participate in pranking their favorite celebrities. In addition, the producers and the celebrity kids will crowdsource top prank ideas from the Facebook community to be used in the show. You Kiddin’ Me will be available via mobile, desktop and Facebook’s TV apps.
The series is produced by Lionsgate. It is executive produced by Kardashian West, Jennifer O’Connell, Brian Tannenbaum, Peter M. Cohen and Melissa Stokes.
“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,” said Kardashian West. “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.”
“We’re excited to be working with Kim on our first premium series for Facebook Watch, led by a world-class creative team and what promises to be a stellar cast,” said O’Connell, Lionsgate’s executive VP of alternative programming. “We continue to expand the range of our platform partnerships and look forward to collaborating with the Facebook team in bringing viewers a buzzworthy, high-quality unscripted series that taps into the fun family dynamics that Kim knows best.”
