“Crank Yankers” Revival Ordered To Series

Crank Yankers Revival Ordered To Series

Comedy Central has ordered a revival of the series “Crank Yankers” from original creators Jimmy Kimmel, Adam Carolla and Daniel Kellison.

Running on Comedy Central from 2002 to 2007, the series featured actual prank phone calls made by the show’s regulars, as well as celebrity guests, and later re-enacted onscreen by puppets.

The new take plans to be updated for the digital-friendly culture with “the world’s favorite profane puppets pranking on phones, social media, e-sport platforms and any venue where trouble can be made.”

Jonathan Kimmel will serve as showrunner and executive producer, joined by the original trio who will also executive produce.
