The programme, which featured the movie star playing pranks on celebrities, ran from 2003 to 2007 on MTV and enjoyed a revival special in 2012, but now bosses at U.S. cable network BET are hoping to pick up the show.

It isn't known if Kutcher will be part of the latest revival.

It's not the only big reality TV show BET bosses are hoping will win them big ratings this year (15) - they've also recruited Kelly Rowland to front a new singing competition.
