TBS has tapped comedian Theo Von to host Deal With It, the hidden-camera show from executive producer Howie Mandel that is set to premiere July 16. In the series, based on a format created by Keshet Broadcasting and United Studios, unsuspecting members of the public will be secretly dared to pull a prank on their unwitting companions with no time to prepare, and must obey all instructions given through an earpiece from a secret control room nearby to win cash and prizes. Von appeared on Road Rules and Last Comic Standing and hosts Yahoo’s daily recap show Primetime In No Time. He also created CrankTexts.com, a website where he texts random cell numbers and gets into conversations with total strangers — a seeming fit with the premise of Deal With It. He is repped by APA, Levity Entertainment and Lev Ginsburg.
Bravo‘s new docu-series Princesses: Long Island has been set to premiere Sunday, June 2 at 9 PM. The show follows six college-educated women from affluent areas of Long Island who live pampered lifestyles in the comfort of their parents’ homes and at the expense of their bank accounts. The series offers a window into their family dynamics and personal lives filled with labels, luxury and love trials. True Entertainment produces the series, which was announced during Bravo Media’s upfront earlier this month. Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Lenid Rolov and Noah Samton are executive producers.
