I GET THAT A LOT, featuring popular stars pulling pranks on everyday people, returns with its fifth one-hour special, to be broadcast Wednesday, Jan. 9 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  

 

Celebrity participants include “The Amazing Race’s” Phil Keoghan working at an outdoor gear and apparel retailer, Olympian and Kardashian patriarch Bruce Jenner selling shoes in a high-end boutique, actress Jane Seymour working as an inept home goods store greeter, actor and comedian Cheech Marin behind the counter at party supply store, racing superstar Jeff Gordon selling automotive supplies and the late Larry Hagman offering food samples at a membership warehouse shopping club.

 

Hagman’s segment was shot Sept. 7, 2012 in Santa Clarita, California.  “Larry was amazing to work with,” says Executive Producer Eric Schotz.   “I think what people didn't know about Larry Hagman is that he was a prankster at heart.  He loved the fact that he could interact with his fans and the fans reactions when they found out it was him are priceless.”

 

I GET THAT A LOT features celebrities tricking everyday citizens in cases of supposed "mistaken identity."  Working ordinary jobs, these celebrities confuse customers who can't decide if it's the actual celebrity or an astonishing look-alike. As these celebrities continue to deny their true identities, various reactions from their customers elicit exasperated and hilarious responses.

 

 I GET THAT A LOT is produced by LMNO Entertainment.  Eric Schotz is the executive producer.  Ed Horwitz and Peter Cohen are co-executive producers.
