Drew Carey developing hidden-camera show

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - CBS is developing a hidden-camera show starring Drew Carey.

The host of “The Price Is Right” is teaming with producer Tom Forman for a project with the working title “WTF!” — which in this case stands for “Wow That’s Funny!”

“WTF” shot a pilot presentation Saturday in which Carey and a troupe of comedic agents wreck havoc in public places. The project combines a hidden-camera show with flash-mob tactics as the group pulls benevolent pranks on deserving citizens. For instance, the group transforms a late-night truck stop into a five-star restaurant for long-haulers.

The well-intentioned-stunt format is one that’s worked well for the network with its Sunday hit “Undercover Boss.”
