TruTV Orders Prank Series ‘Double Cross With Blake Griffin’

The NBA All-Star Shifts to Non-Scripted Comedy

The home of “Impractical Jokers,” truTV, has greenlit a prank revenge series called “Double Cross With Blake Griffin.” The logline: Each week, the NBA star conspires with people who are tired of being the victim to help them get some sweet revenge on their unsuspecting prankster – by pulling off the ultimate double cross!

“truTV has perfected the art of the good-natured prank, and ‘Double Cross’ is adding a new unexpected twist, turning the tables on unsuspecting pranksters,” said Corie Henson, EVP and head of unscripted programming for TBS, TNT and truTV. “People already know Blake Griffin dominates on the court. What they may not know is that he is also wickedly funny, mischievous, and he is as serious about his play off the court as on.”

The series is executive produced by Propagate Content’s comedy shingle, Big Breakfast. Luke Kelly-Clyne and Kevin Healey will executive produce along with Ben Silverman and Howard T. Owens. Blake Griffin, Ryan Kalil and Noah Weinstein executive produce for Mortal Media.”
