$25 MILLION-DOLLAR HOAX --(10:00PM-11:00PM) --(TV-PG)
LANCE BASS MAKES CAMEO APPEARANCE -- The second episode of NBC's newest one-hour unscripted series features a cameo appearance by Lance Bass of boyband N'Sync at a recording studio where Chrissy Sanford hopes to record a Britney Spears tune, which is the long-time wish of Chrissy's sister. This series presents a daughter, Chrissy Sanford, who plays a "practical hoax" on her family by convincing them she has won the lottery and changed from a level-headed, sweet girl to a selfish spend-a-holic. Veteran prize-presenter Ed McMahon ("Star Search," "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson") and games show host Geroge Gray ("The Weakest Link") help set up the ruse.
The series is produced by NBC Universal, Reveille and Hallock Healey Entertainment. The executive producers are Ben Silverman (NBC's "The Biggest Loser"), Stuart Krasnow, Scott Hallock and Kevin Healey ("Scare Tactics").
