Lifetime orders Heidi Klum ‘Kids’ skein

Klum Getting kids to say funny things just by being themselves has been a on-and-off staple (perhaps more like a paper clip) of television for decades.  Lifetime is putting the pages together for its own version, featuring Heidi Klum of the cabler’s “Project Runway” in the Art Linkletter/Bill Cosby role.

The Klum-hosted “Seriously Funny Kids” is scheduled for a 2011 launch on Lifetime, which has ordered 20 halfhour episodes from LMNO Prods. Klum will exec produce with Eric Schotz and fellow “Runway”-ans Desiree Gruber and Jane Cha.

“Seriously Funny Kids will continue to diversify our original programming schedule,” Lifetime prexy and general manager Nancy Dubuc said, “as we move forward developing and ordering new series that strengthen Lifetime’s powerful combination of reality, scripted programs and movies year-round.”

Added Klum: “I have four children under the age of six, and to be honest, sometimes I enjoy them more than adults. They’re uncensored, unpredictable and absolutely hilarious.  The kids will be the absolute stars of this show.”

Development on the show was announced in June. “It’s not ‘Kids Say the Darndest Things,'” Schotz said at the time. “That was Bill Cosby-centric, and this is kid-centric.”
