The Hollywood Reporter hass announced that CBS is developing a hidden-camera show that will star Drew Carey.
The host of “The Price Is Right” is teaming with producer Tom Forman for a project with the working title “WTF!”, which stands for “Wow That’s Funny!”
“WTF” shot a pilot on Saturday in which Carey and a group of comedic agents wreck havoc in public places. The project is a kind of hidden-camera/flash-mob hybrid as the troupe pulls benevolent pranks on deserving citizens.
In the pilot, the group transforms a late-night truck stop into a five-star restaurant for long-haulers.
The “hidden camera” format has worked well for CBS with the hit “Undercover Boss” so its not surprising they want to try it again.
In other the reality news, CBS recently ordered a U.S. version of the U.K. hit “Got to Dance” from Reveille and plans this summer to roll out the 11th season of “Big Brother.”
