'I'm Pointing a Gub at You': Bruckheimer Reality Competition Series, 'Take the Money and Run,' Given Six-Episode Order by ABC Deadline.com
Jerry Bruckheimer's reality competition series "Take the Money and Run" has been given a six-episode order by ABC, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
The order comes nine years after Jerry Bruckheimer TV debuted "The Amazing Race," the story points out. "Take the Money and Run", which previously was called "Catch Me," is executive produced by Bruckheimer.
Also onboard are "Amazing Race" creators Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri, plus Jonathan Littman and Belfast-based producer Philip Morrow, who created the format on which the U.S. show is based, the article notes.
The story adds that "Take the Money and Run" asks whether contestants can commit the perfect crime and get away with it.
Hmm...Maybe one of them will walk into a bank and present a teller with a note that reads, "Please put $50,000 into this bag and abt natural, because I am pointing a gub at you."
