GSN ACQUIRES OFF-NETWORK RIGHTS TO "MINUTE TO WIN IT"

Series Will Air in Four-Hour Blocks Every Tuesday Night, Premiering Tuesday, July 24th at 7 pm (ET)

Santa Monica, CA - July 17, 2012 - GSN announced it has acquired off-network rights to 68 one-hour episodes of the hit game show MINUTE TO WIN IT from NBCUniversal Cable & New Media Distribution. Hosted by All-American chef and television personality Guy Fieri ("Diners, Drive-ins and Dives"), the game features competitors participating in a series of simple, yet nerve-wracking, games that can lead to a $1 million prize. MINUTE TO WIN IT will air in four-hour blocks on Tuesday nights from 7 pm to 11 pm (ET) on GSN beginning on Tuesday, July 24 at 7 pm (ET).

"MINUTE TO WIN IT is a great addition to our line-up," said Amy Introcaso-Davis, Executive Vice President of Programming for GSN. "Fun, entertaining and competitive - this game show brings all the elements that resonate with our core audience."

"GSN, with its emphasis on interactive games, is a perfect home for MINUTE TO WIN IT," said Todd Whiting, Senior Vice President, Cable & New Media Distribution. "We are excited to watch it succeed on the network."

MINUTE TO WIN IT was awarded the C21/Frapa Award for Best Studio Based Game show format at the 2010 Mipcom television festival in Cannes.

About MINUTE TO WIN IT:

Since its premiere on March 14, 2010, the show has inspired a game revolution across the country and online, as people at home, at work and at parties tried their hand at the challenges posed on the show. In each one-hour episode, competitors face 10 challenges that escalate in level of difficulty using everyday household items. Each game has a one-minute time limit and failure to finish the task on time will eliminate the contestant. At various points throughout the game, the competitor can walk away with the money earned up to that point - but it'll take nerves of steel to complete all 10 tasks to win $1 million. The competitors, who come from all walks of life, are shown over 60 games prior to the competition and are encouraged to practice these one-of-a-kind challenges at home. MINUTE TO WIN IT is produced by Universal Media Studios with Friday Television. Craig Plestis, Tim Puntillo, Mattias Olsson and Jock Millgardh serve as executive producers.
