NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 6, 2003–“Girls Behaving Badly” turns up the heat on Miami when the hidden-camera prank show storms the beaches on the first stop in its “Prank Across America Tour.”
The Miami show airs on Oxygen in April as part of a week of special episodes filmed in cities across the U.S.
“Girls Behaving Badly” features an all-female cast pulling hidden camera pranks on unsuspecting ‘marks.’ While in town, the “Girls” will take to the streets to catch the residents of Miami off-guard with their signature pranks. Cafes, nightclubs, the beach…anyplace is fair game for the “Girls” outrageous brand of humor.
“Girls Behaving Badly,” which airs Sundays at 8:00 p.m.(a), is the only hidden camera show where women are in control of the comedy, and the cast of eight will do almost anything in the name of humor.
Oxygen will also run a sweepstakes as part of “Prank Across America.” Viewers can go online to oxygen.com to “Rank The Prank” (their favorite “Girls Behaving Badly” prank) viewed via streaming video and enter the sweepstakes. The grand-prize winner gets a trip with three friends to Miami Beach worth $10,000.
After Miami, the “Prank Across America Tour” hits the road to shoot additional episodes in New Orleans, San Francisco, Detroit, and Chicago.
The episodes will be part of the outrageous series’ second season, following a successful and spirited premiere season that included hidden camera pranks with Cheryl Tiegs, David Alan Grier, Joan and Melissa Rivers, The Chippendale dancers, and players from the WNBA.
The show’s creators, ZOO Productions, are best known for their on-location specials for MTV, including “Spring Break,” “The Summer Beach House” and “Snowed-In.”
