Teens ready to take on babysitting gigs, set up by "well-meaning" family and friends, find themselves in silly situations they never saw coming. Unbeknownst to them, the Extreme Babysitting house is filled with a cast of characters ready to pull off the ultimate babysitting prank. Add an outrageous element to the mix, like a marching band or an explosive science project, and you have a half hour of non-stop laughs. Behind the scenes, YTV's own on-air personality, Andy Chapman (CRUNCH) serves as the show's "Prankmaster" adding another layer of colourful comedy to the hi-jinks.Produced by General Purpose Pictures and CCI Entertainment, in association with YTV, the half-hour show sets out to push the ridiculous metre on the usually mundane world of babysitting, without letting the babysitters know that they are actually on TV.To view the complete release, please visit YTV times are ET/PT.For high-resolution images, please visit: http://mediacentre.corusent.comFollow Corus PR on Twitter @CorusPRFollow YTV on Twitter @YTVSOURCE: YTV Canada Inc.For further information: Kate CalderPublicistCorus Entertainment416.479.6319 kate.calder@corusent.comSue BaldaroPublicist647.802.0739
