The family that pranks together stays together—or at least that’s the logic behind “Jack Vale: Offline,” a new HLN series that follows the exploits of a family of YouTube pranksters and what it takes to pull off their epic videos.
“For a few years, we’ve had networks and production companies interested in what we’re doing with the family, but it wasn’t something we’d pursued,” explained Vale, who’s been making prank videos on YouTube since 2007. He’s amassed 1.2 million subscribers and won the 2014 Streamy for best pranks.
