Comedy Central has ordered a pilot presentation of the tentatively titled "The Con," an unscripted series featuring Skyler Stone. Stone ("Stuck on You") is the star, creator and one of the executive producers of "Con," which showcases his attempts to pull off mock "Mission: Impossible"-style pranks including wangling free products from stores. Also executive producing is Rick de Oliveira ("I Hate My Job") along with Chris Bender and JC Spink ("Den of Thieves") of Benderspink Prods. Production on "Con" begins next month. Stone will next be seen in "Waiting" from Lions Gate. Stone and de Oliveira are repped by Endeavor. Attorneys for Stone and Benderspink are Stone, Meyer & Genow. (Andrew Wallenstein)

By Rob Owen, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

He looks like the guy from those old "Dude, You're Getting a Dell" commercials and shares that character's impish glee, but Skyler Stone is a true con man.

In his new Comedy Central series, Stone plots to get free stuff by conning his way into various situations. In one episode, he persuades the San Francisco Giants to let him sing during the seventh inning stretch by claiming to be a contestant from "American Idol."

Stone reinvents himself as singer Mickey Streets, whom he describes as "Justin Timberlake meets Michael Jackson meets every musical theater major you wanted to kick the living hell out of in college."

In another episode, Stone cons a salon into giving him a free makeover by claiming to be filming a pilot for a show called "Extreme Homeless Makeover."

In between his big cons, he demonstrates smaller ones, like how to get a free sandwich or soda from a fast-food joint.

Bold, brazen and having the time of his life, Stone is a kick to watch, and so is "Con."
