UK pubcaster Channel 4 has commissioned Riot Girls, a hidden camera prank show led by four comedic feminists.

Produced by Brown Eyed Boy, the 1 x 30-minute program aims to tackle a variety of current issues through pranks and stunts, addressing everything from gender pay gap to body hair.

In one prank, the comedians will also see how unsuspecting passengers deal with them ‘wo-manspreading’ into their space on public transport.

Fronting Riot Girls are Grace Campbell, Sophie Duker, Jen Wakefield and Cam Spence.

Riot Girls was commissioned by Becky Cadman and Ian Dunkley, commissioning editors for factual entertainment at C4. The executive producer for Brown Eyed Boy is Gary Reich.

“There has never been a more important moment for young women’s voices to be heard, especially when they go about it in such mischievous, riotous ways,” said Reich, executive producer for Brown Eyed Boy, in a statement.

Riot Girls will air later in 2018.
