‘Stranger Things’ Gaten Matarazzo To Host & Executive Produce Hidden-Camera Prank Show For Netflix

By Denise Petski, Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: Netflix has ordered eight episodes of Prank Encounters, a hidden-camera prank show executive produced and hosted by Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo. The show, which had been in the works for months, hails from Ben Silverman and Howard Owens’ Propagate. It’s set to launch later this year.

Each episode of this terrifying and hilarious prank show takes two complete strangers who each think they’re starting their first day at a new job. It’s business as usual until their paths collide and these part-time jobs turn into full-time nightmares.

Matarazzo executive produces with Silverman, Owens and Kevin Healey for Propagate, and Rob Hyde (Terrence Howard’s Fright Club, Troy). Anthony Gonzalez (Dance Moms, Undercover Boss) directs.
