*BET is dusting the cobwebs off an old MTV series that likely thought it was resting in peace.
The cable network announced Thursday that it’s reviving MTV prank show “Punk’d” as one of its seven new show orders, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Ashton Kutcher hosted its original run from 2003 to 2007 (and a one season revival in 2012).
Though no talent was announced for the BET deal, the network announced the new version would be “tailored” for the BET audience and would include behind-the-scenes look at how the celebrity pranks are conceptualized and carried through.
BET and MTV are both part of the Viacom family.
