Nothing or no one is off limits… including Mom. “I am very much looking forward to working with LMNO Productions on our “Metta World Pranks” show.  LMNO has a long and respected history in the television industry and has produced numerous high quality programs for network, broadcast and syndicated television,” stated Metta World Peace.  “This particular show will give me the opportunity to be funny, creative and entertain audiences – all while being able to collaborate with my friends and colleagues.  I can’t think of a show idea that is more fun and a perfect fit for me.” ——————————— If you’re unaware Metta is quite the character….
