About Deal With It

TBS's hit series Deal With It is gearing up for another round of hilarious pranks when it launches its second season Wednesday, March 19, at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT). Hosted by Theo Von (Primetime in No Time, Last Comic Standing, Road Rules) and executive produced by Howie Mandel, the second season of Deal With It will feature a jam-packed roster of guest celebrities and comedians helping pull over-the-top pranks on the unsuspecting public.

Deal With It is the show that puts a unique spin on friendly dares by giving them the ultimate twist. In each episode, members of the public are secretly recruited 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 are shown no mercy as they are tasked with pulling off some of the most ridiculous behavior ever caught on hidden camera.

Each week on Deal With It, different guest celebrities and comedians will be in on the fun feeding ridiculous, hilarious pranks to the contestants. Among the guest stars who have lined up to participate in Deal With It this season are series executive producer Howie Mandel (America's Got Talent, Deal or No Deal), Nick Cannon (America's Got Talent), Heidi Klum (Project Runway), Kelly Osbourne (Fashion Police), Kendall and Kylie Jenner (Keeping Up with the Kardashians), Arsenio Hall (The Arsenio Hall Show), Bill Engvall (Blue Collar Comedy Tour, The Bill Engvall Show), Kevin Nealon (Weeds), Giuliana and Bill Rancic (Giuliana & Bill), Alex Mandel (Killer Holiday) and WWE competitor Chris Jericho, along with comedy superstars Bob Saget, Tom Green, Orlando Jones and Moshe Kasher.

TBS's Deal With It is 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), Mike Harney (H8R, Howie Do It) and Roy Bank (It's Worth What?, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?) serve as executive producers. Deal With It is based on a successful format created by Keshet Broadcasting and United Studios.

About Bam's Badass Game Show

Jackass star Bam Margera is taking his wild stunt ideas to a whole new level with Bam's Bad Ass Game Show, an over-the-top competition series premiering Monday, April 14, at 10:30pm (ET/PT) on TBS.

Each week on Bam's Bad Ass Game Show, competitors will vie for $10,000 by facing off against each other in incredibly demented, potentially dangerous and occasionally painful challenges. The eclectic contestants range from a kung-fu master to a roller derby queen to a magician. Each contestant must withstand the outrageous stunts, including climbing inside a barrel for a game of Human Bowling, enduring a barrage of firecrackers and being turned into crash-test dummies on an inverted zip line. The loser of each challenge is eliminated until there's only one contestant left standing to take home the cash prize.

Helping design and demonstrate the various challenges are Bam's friends and cohorts: Tim O'Connor (Bam's World Domination), Seth Meisterman (Jackass 3D, Viva la Bam) and Brandon Novak (Jackass, Viva la Bam), who occasionally winds up worse off than any of the contestants.

TBS has ordered six half hour episodes of Bam's Bad Ass Game Show from Bill's Market & Television Productions. David A. Hurwitz (Fear Factor), Noah Bonnett (Total Blackout) and Bam Margera (Jackass) serve as executive producers.
