HOT FROM FOX...

FOX RAISES THE STAKES WITH "MILLION DOLLAR MONEY DROP" PREMIERING MONDAY, DECEMBER 20, ON FOX

Kevin Pollak to Host New Game Show That Gives Contestants $1 Million in Cold, Hard Cash

If you and a friend were handed a million dollars in cash and only had to answer a few simple questions to keep it, could you do it? MILLION DOLLAR MONEY DROP, the ultimate high-stakes game show, created and produced by Endemol, the masterminds behind "Deal or No Deal," gives a team $1 million in cold, hard cash and all they have to do to keep it is correctly answer seven multiple-choice questions.

Actor and comedian Kevin Pollak will host the suspense-filled game show premiering Monday, Dec. 20 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and airing on four consecutive nights, Tuesday, Dec. 21 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Wednesday, Dec. 22 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Thursday, Dec. 23 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Additional airdates to be announced.

During each game, two contestants work together as a team to beat one of the most difficult challenges of their lives: saving the million-dollar mountain of cash in front of them from disappearing forever. Unlike any other game show, the duo is given their prize money - bundles of real cash totaling $1 million - at the start of the game, and it's up to them to keep this life-changing cash. Once the question is revealed, the duo must debate and decide the answer(s) on which they will risk all of their money. Are they confident enough to place all of their money on one answer? Or will the relentless pressure cause them play it safe and spread their money across a few answers?

How would you risk your $1 million on the following question?

According to the Lenox Report, which of these is the most popular Thanksgiving side dish?

A. Mashed Potatoes

B. Green Bean Casserole

C. Cranberry Sauce

D. Candied Yams

When time is up and they have allocated all of their money, the team must step up to the drop to find out if their choices were right or wrong. In a dramatic reveal, the duo sees any cash placed on wrong answers disappear through the money drop below. Will they move on to the next question with their money still on the table, or will they lose it forever? As the game progresses, the questions get harder and the answers become fewer but after seven questions whatever cash - if any - is left on the table is theirs to keep.

"MILLION DOLLAR MONEY DROP starts off the opposite of any other game show on television: We give each pair $1 million in cash, and the money is theirs to lose. It is a riveting and dramatic new show that will have viewers on the edge of their seats the entire week," said Mike Darnell, President of Alternative Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.

"Like 'Deal or No Deal,' MILLION DOLLAR MONEY DROP has proven to be a global hit, and we are thrilled to be bringing it to FOX," said David Goldberg, Chairman of Endemol North America. "In the latest of a long line of innovative and captivating game shows from Endemol, the show is wrought with emotion, and viewers won't be able to take their eyes off MILLION DOLLAR MONEY DROP."

Although he started his career as a stand-up comedian (Comedy Central's "Top 100 Comedians of All Time"), Kevin Pollak may be best known from co-starring in over 60 films, including "A Few Good Men," "The Usual Suspects" and "Casino." Pollak will next be seen opposite Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson in "The Big Year" and in "Red State," written and directed by Kevin Smith. Pollak hosts an award-winning talk show online at kevinpollakschatshow.com, and his latest one-hour comedy special, "The Littlest Suspect," was recently released on DVD.
