A FIREFIGHTER & FATHER IN SAN FRANCISCO COMPETE FOR $100,000,
ON ABC'S "TAKE THE MONEY & RUN"
"Just Between You and Me" -- In the fifth episode, San Francisco firefighter Tricia Reardon and her father, Rick Lechleitner, are given one hour to hide the briefcase worth $100,000. Once that time is up, they're taken into custody by local police detectives Anwawn Jones & Casey Johnson and brought to investigative headquarters. "Take the Money & Run" airs TUESDAY, AUGUST 30 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Over the next 48 hours, the detectives will work with professional interrogators - Detective Paul Bishop and Deputy District Attorney/best-selling author Mary Hanlon Stone - to combine efforts and determine the location of the briefcase. All they'll have to go on are cell phone records, any receipts and the GPS coordinates from the players' car. The rest will be learned from two days and nights of grueling interrogations and extensive field work. If the two detectives are able to locate the briefcase within the 48 hours, they'll get to keep the money. If not, the two players will keep the $100,000.
Combining elements of an edge-of-your-seat investigative drama with the excitement of real people in their hometowns attempting to outwit high-level detectives and interrogators, "Take the Money & Run" is an exhilarating competition series that will take reality television to a whole new level.
