Facebook has ordered a series by Kim Kardashian-West where kids prank their famous celebrity parents. But given that it's a live, unscripted show, those watching it on the social media platform might be chosen to lend their pranking expertise. Plus, show producers (and the kids themselves) will crowdsource ideas from the Facebook community.

"Inspired by Kardashian West's own fun family antics, You Kiddin' Me is a comedic prank series where the kids are in charge and celebrities must do everything their own children say," reads the press release. But it's the community interaction that has the most promise for a Facebook-only show. Likewise, ESPN is bringing its First Take: Your Take show to the social platform and inviting the community to participate -- something which could make or break either series.
