Deal or no deal the big money reality show will make a come back again in its new season. Howie Mandel, the models, the banker and the briefcases will be there again when this syndicated version of “Deal or No Deal” premieres in September packed with cash for viewers as well as contestants.
The players won’t have a shot at the top $1 million in the deal or no deal game show at the NBC series. However they will have a shot at a hefty $500,000. According to the producer, they will be airing each weekday and offer a still-hefty $500,000.
The TV audience will have their own chance to win as well as watch with a $10,000 weekly prize up for grabs via a companion Web site or a call-in number. Mandel will continue to host the hour-long NBC show, which is entering its fourth season next month and has proven a hit. “Deal or No Deal” was NBC’s most-watched entertainment program of the 2007-08 TV with an over 11 million viewer hit per broadcast.
Deal or no deal gives the contestants a run for their luck and intuitive judgment. These contestants are faced with briefcases, each case with a hidden value ranging from a penny to the grand prize. Deal or no deal has 22 cases on the syndicated show, versus 26 on the network version. The models in the upcoming version won’t have custody have custody of the cases. During the game the briefcases cases are eliminated and a contestant weighs the chance of snaring a big prize against lesser but still tempting offers made by the show’s “bank,” represented by an anonymous, silhouetted figure. The show is owned and run by NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution and Endemol USA. It make its comeback on 8th of September.
