Stranger Things' Dustin Is Executive Producer and Host of a New Netflix Show

Gaten Matarazzo is hosting a hidden-camera prank show.

( The third season of Stranger Things is coming soon on Netflix, and as much as the show is easy to love thanks to its cool '90s aesthetic and creepy Upside Down world, the characters are one of the biggest reasons we keep tuning in—who hasn't wondered when Dustin's front teeth would grow in? Now Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin, is branching out with a new show.

Matarazzo took to Twitter to announce his new Netflix show Prank Encounters.


The hidden-camera prank show takes two strangers who think they're starting out on their first day at work only for it to turn into an absolute nightmare once their paths cross.

Matarazzo himself is an executive producer for the show and is set to host as well. According to Deadline, the show has been in the works for months and is produced in collaboration with Propagate. Prank Encounters is set to premiere this year.
