FILE - This March 25, 2011 file photo shows Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest celebrating after dunking the ball during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers, in Los Angeles. A Los Angeles court commissioner has approved Artest´s petition to change his name to Metta World Peace. The bid by the Lakers forward for the new name had been delayed by three weeks so that he could resolve unpaid traffic tickets. With that issue out of the way, Superior Court Commissioner Matthew St. George approved the change Friday, Sept. 16, 2011, during a brief hearing. (AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill, File)

Ron Artest Metta World Peace and LMNO Prods. are teaming up to bring you that hidden camera show for athletes that you never asked for. The production company is the driving force behind I Get That a Lot for CBS. They've partnered with Metta World Peace's Artest Media group to create a show that will feature all sorts of pranks and hijinks involving professional athletes and the folks in their inner circles.

“Pranking and practical jokes are part of the athletic culture, so it comes naturally to Metta,” said Eric Schotz, President and CEO of ICM Partners-repped LMNO Prods.  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.”

Get ready for all of the uncomfortable tomfoolery your little heart desires. For his first prank, Mr. World Peace should make Manti Te'o's girlfriend disappear. Oh wait... [Deadline]
