NEW GAME SHOW "YOU DESERVE IT" TESTS CONTESTANTS WITH TRIVIA QUESTIONS IN AN EFFORT TO WIN MONEY FOR A CAUSE BIGGER THAN THEMSELVES, PREMIERING MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21 ON ABC

From the producers of "Deal or No Deal" and "Secret Millionaire" comes a new, heartfelt game show perfect for the holiday season, "You Deserve It," hosted by Chris Harrison ("The Bachelor") and co-hosted by Brooke Burns. In this six-episode unscripted series, contestants aren't out to win money for themselves, but are playing for someone else - someone they feel deserves it. Starting with a $ 10,000 round and going up to a $250,000 round, contestants purchase a series of clues to help them solve the puzzles and win money for their chosen recipient. But each clue will cost them -- and the cost of each clue is randomly selected and won't be revealed until after it has been purchased. The beneficiary, who is in another location under constant hidden-camera surveillance throughout the show, gets the surprise of a lifetime when family, friends, Brooke Burns and a camera crew burst in with life-changing news. "You Deserve It" premieres, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21 (9:01-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Please Note: "DANCING WITH THE STARS: Episode 1310" will air from 8:00-9:01 p.m., ET that night; "CASTLE: Kill Shot" will air from 10:00-11:00 p.m., ET.

"You Deserve It" will be produced by Kinetic Content. The show was created by Dick de Rijk, who also created "Deal or No Deal." He will executive-produce along with Chris Coelen ("Secret Millionaire"), Matilda Zoltowski ("Dancing with the Stars") and Jeff Krask ("Deal or No Deal"). "You Deserve It" is a Red Arrow Entertainment Group format, distributed by SevenOne International. It is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's Selected HD Format, with 5.1 channel surround sound. A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to airdate.
