It looks like Metta World Peace is looking for a distraction (or exit strategy) from this awful season with his Los Angles Lakers.

According to Deadline, the Queens native and his Artest Media group are partnering with LMNO Prods., producers of CBS hiddent camera specials, “I Get That A Lot.” The toughest elbows in the NBA will be developing a prank series featuring athletes.

“Pranking and practical jokes are part of the athletic culture, so it comes naturally to Metta,” said Eric Schotz, President and CEO of ICM Partners-repped LMNO Prods.  “Metta has a great sense of humor and this show will be a natural vehicle for him to showcase a side of his personality we don’t get to see on the court.”

While this show sounds like it could be fun, unfortunately, MWP is still clinging to his musical aspirations.  The “Touch Me Like I’m Blind” singer released a new song featuring Jim Jones called “Get Like Me” earlier this month.

The struggle continues.
