Run for Money is a new reality-based game show that is going to premier on the Sci Fi Channel. According to The Hollywood Reporter, contestants will be stalked by relentless hunters as they try to find hidden cash prizes.
The series is based on a popular Japanese game show. The action takes place in real-time. As the clock ticks down, more hunters appear, gunning for the contestants. At the same time, the game perimeter gets smaller. The contestants will earn cash for every second they stay alive. The last person left standing will collect all of the prize money.
Production on the pilot is set for January of 2008. It will be shot in Los Angeles.
