Facebook Watch to showcase an unscripted series by Kim Kardashian West

Kim Kardashian West is set to star in her own series called 'You Kiddin' Me' which will run on Facebook Watch.

The series will feature famous people being pranked by their own kids according to Variety. The show is said to be produced by Lionsgate while other executive producers are Jennifer O’Connell, Brian Tannenbaum, Peter M. Cohen, and Melissa Stokes.

The show will be available to watch via mobile, desktop and Facebook’s TV apps. Members of the Facebook community will be chosen to participate in pranking their favorite celebrities.

Kardashian West said in a statement: “I know from firsthand experience that children are wise beyond their years and can come up with the craziest things, so imagine how funny it will be to see them make all the decisions.

“I’m delighted to be working with the Lionsgate and Facebook teams on this exciting new venture and invite viewers to witness their favorite celebrity parents get pranked when we launch the series on Facebook Watch.”

Jennifer O’Connell, Lionsgate’s executive vice president of alternative programming, said: “We continue to expand the range of our platform partnerships and look forward to collaborating with the Facebook team in bringing viewers a buzz-worthy, high-quality unscripted series that taps into the fun family dynamics that Kim knows best.”
