BOB SAGET HOSTS '1 VS 100' -- WHERE ONE CONTESTANT TAKES ON A MOB OF 100 OTHERS TO WIN A MILLION DOLLARS -- IN NBC'S NEWEST PRIMETIME GAME SHOW SET TO PREMIERE OCTOBER 13

New Series Import from Endemol USA, The Producers of 'Deal or No Deal'

BURBANK -- September 27, 2006 -- One contestant will battle "the mob" of 100 others in an attempt to win $1 million in NBC's newest international game show import "1 vs 100," from Endemol USA, premiering its five-week run on Friday, October 13 (9-10 p.m.) following an original episode of "Deal or No Deal" (8-9 p.m. ET).

Following the series premiere, "1 vs 100" will air in its regular time slot on Fridays at 8 p.m. beginning October 20, leading into the return of "Las Vegas" (9-10 p.m. ET). As a result, "Crossing Jordan" will rejoin the NBC schedule at a date to be announced later.

The announcement was made today by Kevin Reilly, President, NBC Entertainment.

"This entertaining game is a proven winner from Europe that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats as the pressure builds with every question and the financial stakes grow higher," said Reilly. "Bob Saget is the perfect host to keep things percolating without letting the excitement of so many people spin out of control."

Reilly continued: "The introduction of this new show also allows us the luxury of saving such a proven and versatile series as 'Crossing Jordan' for use later in the season."

From Endemol USA, the producers of NBC's "Deal or No Deal," the hotly anticipated new game show is hosted by popular comedian Bob Saget ("Full House," "America's Funniest Home Videos"). The essence of the game requires that one player must outlast "the mob" of 100 people in a tense battle of brains and guts for a chance to win up to $1 million. To stay in the game, the player must answer trivia questions and get every one right -- wrong answers from the mob eliminates them from the game, driving up the cash prize for the player. If the player can eliminate all 100 members of the mob, they'll go home with the $1 million top prize. However, if the player gets one answer wrong, the game is over and "the mob" will split the player's winnings up to that point.

"1 vs 100" is an international hit in Sweden, Belgium, Holland (where it originated), Germany, Argentina and Portugal and was recently sold to BBC in the United Kingdom to air in primetime.

The series is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA. The series is executive-produced by Scott St. John.

Endemol USA is a leading producer of television programming specializing in reality and non-scripted genres for network and cable television.
