House Haunters is coming soon to Discovery+. Anthony Anderson, and his mother, Doris Bowman, are set to host the series which is part home renovation series and part hidden camera prank series. Six half-hour episodes have been ordered, and viewers will see the pair prank “unsuspecting house hunters, real estate agents, handymen, and even a few HGTV stars.”
Discovery+ revealed more about the upcoming series, which is a part of their yearly Ghostober event, in a press release.
“Emmy(R) nominated actor and producer Anthony Anderson, star of the ABC sitcom Black-ish, along with his mom and co-host of ABC’s To Tell the Truth, Doris Bowman, will combine their love of all things home – and mischief – to host the new discovery+ series House Haunters. Part of Discovery, Inc.’s cross-brand, month-long Ghostober event that features Halloween and supernatural-inspired programming from the home, food and paranormal genres, the hidden camera real estate and home renovation prank series will be available to stream beginning Thursday, Oct. 7. During the six half-hour episodes, Anthony and Doris will take over properties and devise hilarious gags for unsuspecting house hunters, real estate agents, handymen and even a few HGTV stars, including Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent (The Nate & Jeremiah Home Project) and Brian and Mika Kleinschmidt (100 Day Dream Home).
Throughout House Haunters, with dozens of hidden cameras in place and working from a nearby unmarked van, Anthony and Doris will scheme to scare, startle and surprise visitors to the homes – executing humorous high jinks with creepy dolls come to life, mysterious pests on the loose, home decor that has a mind of its own or seemingly haunted spaces.
“If there’s one thing you should know about me and my Mom, we love a good prank,” said Anthony. “And we’re bringing the fun to the perfect place – an open house.”
“Anthony and I love laughter and fun, so a hidden camera prank show is right up our alley,” said Doris. “We can’t wait to show you what we have up our sleeves.”
House Haunters is produced by NorthSouth Productions, who also produces the hit show Impractical Jokers.”
