New Players Will Vie for Life-Changing Cash as the Network Begins Production This Summer

· NBC is heading back to the island with the second-season pickup of "Deal or No Deal Island." The elusive Banker will invite a new crop of players to compete in the season-long, fully immersive competition.

· "With expert gameplay, adventure and a new layer of strategy, the reimagined 'Deal or No Deal Island' had fans on the edge of their seats, just like the original," said Corie Henson, Executive Vice President, Unscripted Content. "A huge thanks to our crew and the biggest gamer of them all, host Joe Manganiello. Together we're thrilled to be back with another season that will be sure to test the contestants and the Banker's limits."

· "It was incredible to see how audiences immediately took to the new format of 'Deal or No Deal Island,' welcoming Joe Manganiello and the Banker's guests into their homes and bringing new life to the iconic IP," said Sharon Levy, Chief Executive Officer, Endemol Shine North America. "We're thrilled that NBC has picked up a second cycle and eagerly anticipate seeing how the Banker will physically test and mentally challenge a new season of contestants as they compete for a transformative jackpot."

· "Deal or No Deal Island" reached 30 million total viewers across linear and digital platforms this season to date. The series is averaging 5.8 million total viewers across all platforms, more than doubling its live audience.

· The series is currently the #1 NBC unscripted show on Peacock and has the most watched unscripted NBC premiere on Peacock.

· The season finale of "Deal or No Deal Island" will air on May 13 at 10 p.m. on NBC. All episodes stream next day on Peacock.

· Produced by Endemol Shine North America, "Deal or No Deal Island" is an exciting competition format that has been reimagined from the original Banijay format, "Deal or No Deal."

· Executive producers are Matt Kunitz, Vittoria Cacciatore, Jeffrey Breeden, Joe Manganiello, Howie Mandel, and Endemol Shine North America's Sharon Levy, Michael Heyerman and Sean Loughlin.


"Deal or No Deal Island" transports 13 players to the elusive Banker's private island, where he makes the rules and twists lie behind every palm tree.

In "Deal or No Deal Island," the iconic briefcases containing a total of more than $200 million in prize money are hidden around the island. In each episode, players compete in daring challenges to secure the briefcases that will be used in that night's game of "Deal or No Deal." The player who snags the highest-value case gains immunity and gets to choose a fellow player to enter "The Temple."

The chosen competitor must then play a high-intensity game of "Deal or No Deal." If the player makes a bad deal and accepts an offer of a lesser value than what is in their chosen case, they are immediately eliminated. If the player makes a good deal and accepts an offer of a higher value than what is in their case, they gain the power to select whom to eliminate.

The winnings from each game of "Deal or No Deal" are added to a group pot that grows exponentially throughout the season. At the end of the season, the last player standing faces the Banker to potentially win the biggest prize in "Deal or No Deal" history.

However, the devious Banker is always watching and raising the stakes with tests of strategy and greed. Manganiello serves as the gaming liaison - an intermediary between the Banker and contestants - overseeing gameplay and helping navigate them through tough, life-changing decisions.
