The Artest Media Group, which has partnered with LMNO Productions, awill be launching a new television show which can best be conceptualized by a mix between Punk’d and anything sports related. The show will feature pranks on pro athletes and their entourages.
“In addition to Metta and other professional athletes, the show’s practical jokes will also include family members, friends, boyfriends, girlfriends and fans. ‘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.’”
