*LMNO Prods., producers of CBS hidden camera series of specials “I Get That A Lot,” has partnered with Los Angeles Lakers star Metta World Peace (born Ron Artest) and his Artest Media Group to develop “Metta World Pranks,” a new prank series featuring professional athletes in hidden camera bits.

In addition to Metta and other professional athletes, the show’s practical jokes will include family members, friends, boyfriends, girlfriends and fans, reports Deadline.com.

“Pranking and practical jokes are part of the athletic culture, so it comes naturally to Metta,” said Eric Schotz, President and CEO of ICM Partners-repped LMNO Prods. Metta has a great sense of humor and this show will be a natural vehicle for him to showcase a side of his personality we don’t get to see on the court.”
