In its freshman season, the series has reached 35.4 million viewers including 13.2 million Kids 6-14 and 6.3 million Boys 6-14 on Disney XD and Disney Channel. “Walk the Prank” is also Disney XD’s No. 1 series on VOD (6.6 million viewer engagements) and ranks as the No. 1 series in unique visitors on the Disney XD app (2.6 million video starts by 425,000 unique visitors). Clips from the series have amassed over 38 million total views launch to date on Disney XD’s YouTube channel.

The scripted portion of the series centers on the everyday adventures of a tight-knit foursome – brothers Chance and Herman and their best friends Bailey and Dusty – which serves as a source of inspiration for the team’s unscripted and creative over-the-top practical jokes. The good-natured pranks capture genuine and hilarious reactions for the group’s online hidden-camera show.

Created and executive produced by Adam Small (“Mad TV”) and Trevor Moore (“Whitest Kids U Know”), “Walk The Prank” comes from Horizon Productions and carries a TV-Y7 parental guideline.
