ABC Family is ready to freak people out with the new series Freak Out coming this fall. The hidden camera series, described as ‘hilariously scary’, will have a 14 episode run, kicking off during the network’s 13 Nights of Halloween.
“I’m glad to get reality back on our schedule and to continue to grow our original programming,” said Tom Ascheim, President, ABC Family. “Scary can be funny, and this series is sure to deliver the ‘sclaughing’ — the screaming and the laughing. We’re also excited to be working with 495 Productions, a company with a proven track record for delivering hugely entertaining reality series.”
Each episode of Freak Out will feature an unsuspecting mark, whose fears come to life before their eyes with elaborate special effects, intricate makeup, twisted actors, and multiple cameras capturing the scenario from every angle. Every frighteningly hilarious prank is deviously tailored with help from the victim’s friends and family to turn an everyday situation into someone’s scary moment, until they realize they’ve been pranked.
