Check out the trailer here:
NEW YORK, NY (April 11, 2016) - MTV today announced the premiere of the brand new 30-minute hidden camera prank show "Ladylike," premiering on Thursday, June 9 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
Ladylike takes the attitude and subject matter of "Girl Code" and steps out of the studio and onto the street. Lead by "Girl Code" alum Nicole Byer, the "Ladylike" team pokes holes in traditional ideas of "ladylike" behavior by pranking the unsuspecting public. The show will also feature the talents of Megan Gailey, Jade Catta-Preta, Blair Socci, Shannon Coffey, Anna-Lee Wright and Matteo Lane.
Through a sharp, comedic lens, "Ladylike" upends gendered stereotypes and disrupts sexist ideas around issues like reproductive rights and gender norms. Pranks like "Save our Sperm" challenges men to engage their own bodies in the struggle for reproductive rights, while "Toys for Boys" asks a focus group to consider some very special dolls made just for boys, and "Junk Male" flips the male-gaze with hilarious results.
