LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - GSN is moving forward with a new Corbin Bernsen-hosted game show for primetime titled “How Much Is Enough?”
The network has ordered 40 half-hour episodes of the series, which marks Bernsen’s debut as a game show host. The show, from BBC Worldwide America, features four contestants competing against a “Money Clock” to win the most cash without being the greediest. It premieres January 8 and will air at 9 p.m. ET Tuesday through Saturday.
The game begins with five Money Clocks ranging in value from $1,000 to $5,000. The players secretly buzz in each round as the amount of money is shown on the clock in an attempt to capture the second-highest amount of money each time -- the “greediest” player gets nothing. After five rounds, the two players with the most money move on to the “Final Face-Off,” in which the Money Clock counts upward, starting from zero. The first player to buzz in wins that amount of cash on the clock, and the greedier player goes home empty-handed.
“How Much” marks the first series produced for GSN by BBC Worldwide America, whose credits include ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” and the upcoming series “Dance War,” also for ABC, and “Clash of the Choirs” for NBC.
BBC Worldwide aims to distribute the “How Much” format globally.
Bernsen also co-stars on the USA Network series “Psych” and is president and CEO of Publicmediaworks, a media company that develops “tailor made” entertainment content for multiple platforms.
