Punk’d played through the earlier 2000’s for five seasons and centered around playing pranks on various celebrities, the show helped launch Ashton Kutcher’s career into the stratosphere and the show’s main prankster Dax Shepard has went onto a successful career, mostly recently with his turn as a father on the uber-popular show Parenthood.
Deadline.com has revealed that the tween favorite will host the revival of the show, while Kutcher’s Katalyst Production Company will develop the show.
The show will begin in 2011, however filming will begin soon. So much for the element of surprise!
If the power house of Bieber and Kutcher has one thing going for them it’s their combined 11.3+ million followers on Twitter.
