A hidden camera, a sense of humor and the help of Hollywood’s top special effects artists are all kids and their families need to pull the ultimate good-natured prank on their unsuspecting mom or dad in ‘Code: 9,’ a new hidden camera reality series that’s comedy for the whole family, premiering THURSDAY, JULY 26 (8:00 – 8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel…In every episode, one family member goes deep undercover with special prosthetic make-up and costumes and goes face-to-face with their unsuspecting parent as one of the actors who helps pull off the big surprise. The signal ‘code 9′, indicates the start of the prank when the target is walking in and everyone needs to be in their places and ready.
The series begins in 2012 (just after the 2012 Summer Olympics), when London and some of the south east has been evacuated in the wake of a nuclear attack during the opening ceremony of the Games. The government has relocated to Manchester; Thames House has been decommissioned, and MI5 is forced to set up offices across the UK in an attempt to help Britain avoid new attacks
Further interaction was through the extended reality site Liberty News, a 2013 news site created by online agency Six to Start. Offering relevant news stories associated with the episodes, the site was updated live during the programme with stories related to the on-screen action; the site encouraged role-play as though you were part of the in-series world to explore the issues raised. Following the last episode of the series, the site ran a live chat with characters representing various organisations relevant to the storylines. During this chat, the site was raided and the news organisation 'closed down'. The Liberty News site has since been archived.
