ABC'S "MILLION DOLLAR MIND GAME" CHALLENGES TEAMS
WITH LOGIC-BASED QUESTIONS FOR A CHANCE TO WIN $1 MILLION
WHEN IT PREMIERES, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 23
An exciting new game of logic and teamwork, ABC's "Million Dollar Mind Game" brings contestants and viewers a new way of thinking and will change the way you think about game shows.
In this game of reasoning and smarts, teams comprised of six people who all know each other - co-workers, friends, teammates, etc. - will need to tackle a series of logic-based questions. The more questions the team answers correctly, the more money they will earn towards a grand prize, potentially earning them $1 million. The team has just 60 seconds to discuss and decide upon an answer. After each correct answer, the team must decide unanimously if they will leave with their earnings or move on to the next question for a chance at more money. "Million Dollar Mind Game" is hosted by one of the most popular television presenters in the United Kingdom, Vernon Kay.
In the series premiere, "Episode 101," a team of six middle school teachers combine their wits and brain power to compete for the grand prize of $1 million. But will their efforts be enough to earn them an A? "Million Dollar Mind Game" premieres SUNDAY, OCTOBER 23 (4:00-5:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
"Million Dollar Mind Game" is based on the hit Russian game, "What? Where? When?" It is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format with a 5.1 channel surround sound. A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to the airdate.
