CBS Orders Game Show Project THR, TVRage
CBS has placed an order for a game show project. The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that the network ordered a pilot for a game show called "Money Pump.”
According to TVRage.com, the competition works like this: Contestants work in teams of two to answer trivia questions that become increasingly tough. After some time, the giant money pump starts, but the prize money will decrease quickly. Whoever answers all the questions will keep whatever money remains.
The pilot has tapped Kevin Frazier of "omg! Insider" as the host. The project is based on an Israeli format.
