This was inevitable, Metta was made for TV. via inquisitr.com Release from LMNO Productions: LOS ANGELES (January 28, 2013) – LMNO Productions, producers of the hit CBS hidden camera series, I Get That A Lot and Fire Me…Please! has entered into a partnership with Los Angeles Lakers star, Metta World Peace and his Artest Media Group to create a new prank series featuring professional athletes in a variety of hidden camera bits.  The show, which is in development, is called Metta World Pranks. “Pranking and practical jokes are part of the athletic culture, so it comes naturally to Metta,” said Eric Schotz, President and CEO LMNO Productions.  Metta has a great sense of humor and this show will be a natural vehicle for him to showcase a side of his personality we don’t get to see on the court.” The series will feature Metta and other professional athletes at their funniest, whether they are the victims or the pranksters.  Our practical jokes will also include family members, friends, boyfriends, girlfriends and fans. 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….
