"DEAL OR NO DEAL" HEADS INTO SECOND SEASON IN NATIONAL SYNDICATION ON SEPTEMBER 7

Hit Game Show's New Season Features Special Themed Shows Including WWE Week, Where Superstar Dolph Ziggler And Divas Eve and Maria Join Host Howie Mandel For A Week Of Episodes

UNIVERSAL CITY, CA - September 3, 2009 - NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution and Endemol USA's hit game show "Deal or No Deal" heads into its second season in national syndication on Monday, September 7 (check local listings). The new season will feature special themed episodes including a week of shows with Superstar Dolph Ziggler and Divas Eve and Maria from World Wrestling Entertainment.

"Deal or No Deal," which has been renewed in more than 95% of the U.S. for its second season in national syndication, was the #1 new daily series in syndication in its first season (2008/09), averaging more than 2.5 million viewers per episode, according to Nielsen Media Research. The second season of "Deal or No Deal" is currently being taped at Sonalysts Studios in Waterford, Conn.

"I am thrilled to be doing this show. To have a job on a show that was so successful in the first season, successful enough to bring it back for more is thrilling and beyond my wildest dreams," said "Deal or No Deal" host Howie Mandel.

The new season will feature a number of special themed weeks, including WWE week, when a Superstar and Divas from "Friday Night SmackDown" take over the "Deal or No Deal" stage. WWE Divas Eve and Maria will accompany host Howie Mandel on stage walking each contestant through the game, while WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler will fill in as the guest banker for a week's worth of episodes. In addition, "Deal or No Deal" this season will feature weeks of shows honoring nurses, teachers, firefighters and police officers from across the country, giving them a chance to win the daily $500,000 top prize.

The half-hour version of the popular game includes all of the key elements that made NBC's primetime version a breakout hit; Mandel as host, the Banker, models, contestants risking big money and the same award-winning production team from Endemol USA. Mandel walks each contestant through the game, as they play for a huge cash prize in a high-energy contest of nerves, instincts and raw intuition.

Based on the successful format from Endemol that has aired in more than 50 countries, "Deal or No Deal" is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding and distributed in national syndication by NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution. David Goldberg is the Chairman of Endemol North America. The series is executive-produced by Scott St. John.
