Run for Money is an action-packed, edge-of-your-seat reality
competition show pitting contestants striving to earn cash and prizes
against a group of relentless "Hunters." Based on a successful Japanese
format from Fuji Television, the game takes place over exactly 60
minutes in various landmark locations in major cities around the
As the clock winds down, the competition gets harder. More Hunters appear on the streets, helicopters begin tracking and pinpointing the location of players, and tasks are assigned that test nerves and create laughs. In the end, only one player will survive to win the cash.
Run for Money is in development for the Sci Fi Channel, but a premiere date has not yet been announced. Run for Money is executive produced by Scott Messick and Mess Media for Buena Vista Productions and Fujisankei Communications International.
