Vivica A. Fox To Host Lifetime's All-New, Hidden Camera Series 'Prank My Mom'

More programming starring black women from the Lifetiime network; this time it’s Vivica A. Fox. See details in the press release we received below

LOS ANGELES, CA (September 5, 2012) — Mothers beware!!! Lifetime has ordered 10 episodes of Prank My Mom, a new, hidden-camera, comedy show that allows kids to show their mothers just how much they love them. Hosted by Vivica A. Fox (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Dancing with the Stars), the program will premiere on Lifetime on Tuesday, October 9th, at 10 pm ET/PT. In advance of its October 9th launch, Lifetime will sneak-peek Prank My Mom on Thursday, September 27th, and October 4th, at 10:30pm, immediately following Project Runway.

Prank My Mom will feature sons and daughters pulling off the most unheard of, outrageous and hilarious pranks – from a son getting caught shoplifting with his mom; to a daughter setting mom up on what turnsinto a blind date from hell; to a mom saying she was seriously injured in an accident to keep her child from being fired – all moms are in for a surprise they will never forget.

As the pranks progress, the kids’ acting skills are put to the test while strategically-placed hidden cameras are on hand to capture every mom’s reaction. From shock, tears and laughter, to panic and near nervous breakdowns, everyone is in on the joke… except the moms. Once they have reached their breaking points, the actors let the moms in on the secret: that they’ve been PRANKED! Cameras rush in to reveal — to a more than relieved mom — that they’ve been set up by their loved ones.

A+E Networks will handle global sales for Prank My Mom.

Prank My Mom is produced by Thinkfactory Media and Peter M. Cohen Productions. Adam Reed, Peter M. Cohen, Adam Freeman and Leslie Greif serve as Executive Producers with Lifetime’s Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Kimberly Chessler.

One thing I've always loved about Vivica is that she's a hustler. Unfortunately, the caliber of her projects have gone down since the 90's.


The sequel to this show will be "How can I get my mom's hand print off my face?"


She also hosted a reality show called the Starlet a couple of years ago. Vivica's busier than a lot of people may realize.

Im excited to see this. Glad Vivica got the hosting job. She did well when she hosted the Jersey Shore reunion. Thanks for the update. I'll be look forward to this.


Prank My Mom is actually already on. I don't think there was a "host", maybe voice-over narration (not Vivica). 3 pranks per 30 minute episodes. some were pretty funny. Son gets busted for shop lifting. handcuffed son dashes out door, mom decides to flea with him. The chase is on. The mother does not know the son is in on the prank, so the mother believe she's doing what mothers do… help her child. Another: While sitting in a restaurant a son tells his mother ( a black woman) that he donated sperm for 100 dollars a pop. A lesbian couple enters. They are the "parents" of a little girl who was a result of the donated sperm. The Lesbian couple are demanding back support payment totally thousands.The mother is fit to be tied. After an exchange of words the mother is heard saying "I am about to whoop me some ass up in here". It gets real ugly (but funny).
