The younger actors from Stranger Things definitely have bright futures ahead of them. They’re appearing everywhere lately, which is unsurprising given how talented they are.

It looks like there’s another project in the pipeline for one of them.

Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin on the popular Netflix series, is teaming up with the streaming giant for a new hidden camera prank show. According to Entertainment Weekly, this untitled project will remind fans of Syfy’s Scare Tactics.

In each episode, “two complete strangers each think they’re starting their first day at a new job. It’s business as usual until their paths collide and these part-time jobs turn into full-time nightmares.”

Granted, it’s not exactly like Scare Tactics, which featured one unlucky person in a IRL horror movie scenario who had been nominated by a family member. But it was usually a new job and then things going horribly wrong.

Netflix ordered eight episode of the series, which will premiere sometime later this year.

Matarazzo will reprise his role as Dustin in Stranger Things season three which premieres on July 4th on Netflix.
