"Show Me the Money," a new high-octane variety/game show series hosted by Emmy-winning television legend William Shatner, premieres in its regular time period, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 22 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
In "Episode 102," contestants Paulara Hawkins, a celebrity personal assistant from Dallas, Texas and Bill Kapitan, an office furniture installer from Wills Point, Texas attempt to win — and keep from losing — a million plus dollars.
In "Show Me the Money," contestants must answer a minimum of six trivia questions. After each answer, the contestant chooses from among thirteen stunning dancers on stage, each of whom holds a scroll with a dollar figure to be added or subtracted — for correct or incorrect answers — to the contestant’s total. A correct answer, combined with choosing a dancer holding big money, can quickly catapult the player’s winnings into the millions. But a wrong answer, combined with the wrong dancer, can wipe out winnings in an instant. There is no opportunity to play it safe – contestants will be tempted to take the money and run, but this rollercoaster ride of a game show requires that you play to the very end.
Adding to the variety aspect of the show are the thirteen stunning Million-Dollar Dancers who are always ready to break into any style of dance, while audacious master of ceremonies William Shatner spontaneously boogies with the beauties on stage.
"Show Me the Money" is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA. Endemol USA. The series is executive-produced by Mike Nichols.
