Theo Von to Host TBS's Upcoming Hidden-Camera Comedy "Deal With It"

The Ambush Begins July 16

Comedian, host and reality star Theo Von (Primetime in No Time, Last Comic Standing, Road Rules) is set to host TBS's upcoming new series Deal With It, from executive producer Howie Mandel. The hidden-camera show with a twist based on a successful format created by Keshet Broadcasting and United Studios is slated to premiere Tuesday, July 16, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

Theo Von is the host of Yahoo!'s popular daily recap show, Primetime in No Time, the most successful video series online. As a comedian, he headlines comedy clubs across the country and was featured in one of the highest rated half-hour specials on Comedy Central last year. He also appeared on the hit series Last Comic Standing. Theo first came to the public's attention when he starred on MTV's popular reality series Road Rules. In addition to his on-screen appearances, Theo created CrankTexts.com, a website where he texts random cellphone numbers and gets into conversations with total strangers.

In TBS's Deal With It, unsuspecting members of the public will be secretly dared to pull a prank on their unwitting companions with absolutely no time to prepare. If they agree to participate, they must obey all instructions given through an earpiece from a secret control room nearby. With the opportunity to prank their way to cash and prizes, these everyday people will be shown no mercy as they are tasked with pulling off some of the most ridiculous behavior ever caught on hidden camera.

Deal With It is being produced for the network from Howie Mandel's Alevy Productions, Roy Bank's Banca Studio and Keshet Broadcasting, in association with Lionsgate Television. Howie Mandel (Deal or No Deal, Mobbed), Mike Marks (Mobbed), Roy Bank (It's Worth What?, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?) and Mike Harney (Scare Tactics) serve as executive producers. Deal With It is based on a successful format created by Keshet Broadcasting and United Studios.
