Deal Or No Deal Going To National Syndication

October 09, 2007 11:12 PM by Joe Blackmon

NBC Universal recently announced that NBC’s and Endemol USA’s hit game
show Deal or No Deal will be going into national syndication starting
in fall 2008.  The announcement was made by Barry Wallach, President of
NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution and David Goldberg,
President of Endemol USA.

Howie Mandel, who will continue to host NBC’s hit primetime run of the game show, is set to host the new half-hour version being sold to local stations for Monday-through-Friday broadcasts.  The syndicated version will also include the Banker, models, contestants risking big money and the same award-winning production team.

The syndicated Deal or No Deal has already been sold to NBC Universal stations in the nation’s top markets including WNBC-TV New York, KNBC-TV Los Angeles and WMAQ-TV in Chicago, WCAU-TV Philadelphia, KNTV-TV San Francisco and others, as well as to stations from CBS, Allbritton, Scripps, Sinclair and more in top markets.

"Deal or No Deal is a fun and entertaining game for families to watch together at home and root for their favorite contestants," says Wallach.  "It’s win all or lose all, as contestants have a chance to change their lives forever in a matter of minutes.  Deal  is a ratings success because it’s emotional, aspirational and most importantly, every moment counts. We are proud to bring this proven product to the marketplace with all key elements intact, giving stations a great opportunity to lift their lineups to new ratings heights."

"We are thrilled to continue our already successful partnership with NBC Universal and Howie Mandel with this new version of Deal or No Deal," says Goldberg.  "The half-hour version of Deal has been an extraordinary hit around the globe and with Howie and our same production team at the helm, this new daily syndicated version will continue to work with American audiences for years to come."

"My wife could not be more thrilled to have me out of the house and at work Monday thru Friday," said Mandel.

    Hi, NBC

    How is everyone doing, I hope well and enjoying themselves. Me and my two children is long time listeners of your morning show and enjoying the excitement of your late afternoon shows. We just got done watching one of are favorite shows “Deal or No Deal”. This show makes my kids happy to see how people can play and have a once in a lifetime to win some money. After the show went of they ask ” mama how can you get on tv ” and I thought for a moment and couldn’t really answer them and I Ask God that it would be nice to be a contest, and I always think how can I get on a T. V. show and I watch everyday people like me get on T.V. My nine year old son turn on my computer and said for me to enter, so here I am asking someone to please get in contact with me to show my how I can be the next million dollar winner.
    Please reply to my email.

    Hello “Howie and Banker”

    Thank you greatly, Latasha
