The hidden camera series enabled audiences to watch pranks being played on celebrities. Previous victims of series include Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus, amongst a host of others. 

The revived series will provide a behind-the-scenes look at how the pranks are thought of and planned. There will also be a time limit on carrying out the pranks.  The show will reportedly be "tailored" to the network's primarily African American audience, as Variety reports. 

Punk'd was originally hosted by Kutcher and ran on MTV between 2003 and 2007. A revival series, featuring a different celebrity guest for each episode, aired in 2012. A host for the upcoming BET revival has yet to be announced but the show's creator, Goldberg, will return as executive producer. 

The premiere date is yet to be announced. 

In addition to Punk'd, BET has also ordered to new series: a sitcom and a singing competition. The sitcom will star singer Brandy Norwood and the competition, entitled Chasing Destiny, will focus on Kelly Rowland's quest to find the next female superstar group. 

"Black consumers experience BET Networks differently than any other network because of our 35 years of history, tremendous experience and insights. We continue to give our viewers what they want - high-quality content that respects, reflects and elevates them," said BET Networks chair-CEO Debra Lee at the upfront presentation. "With more hours of original programming than ever before, our new shows coupled with our returning hits like Being Mary Jane and Nellyville make our original slate stronger than ever."
