YTV Launches New Prank Show

Extreme Babysitting Premieres on Saturday, January 5 at 7 p.m. ET/PT on YTV

TORONTO, Dec. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Corus Entertainment's YTV is launching a brand-new original prank series Extreme Babysitting, set to debut on Saturday, January 5 at 7 p.m. ET/PT, following a line-up of great comedy including Zoink'd! and Splatalot.

Extreme Babysitting is sure to make families laugh by taking a totally relatable situation - babysitting - and giving it a hilarious twist. Teens ready to take on babysitting gigs, set up by "well-meaning" family and friends, find themselves in silly situations they never saw coming. Unbeknownst to them, the Extreme Babysitting house is filled with a cast of characters ready to pull off the ultimate babysitting prank. Add an outrageous element to the mix, like a marching band or an explosive science project, and you have a half hour of non-stop laughs. Behind the scenes, YTV's own on-air personality, Andy Chapman (CRUNCH) serves as the show's "Prankmaster" adding another layer of colourful comedy to the hi-jinks.

Produced by General Purpose Pictures and CCI Entertainment, in association with YTV, the half-hour show sets out to push the ridiculous metre on the usually mundane world of babysitting, without letting the babysitters know that they are actually on TV.
