NBC COMES INTO A "SMALL FORTUNE" WITH SIX-EPISODE ORDER OF YOUNGEST MEDIA'S DELIGHTFULLY POCKET-SIZED COMPETITION SERIES

Hit U.K. Format Arrives Stateside to Offer Huge Prizes to Winners of Tiny Challenges

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - April 3, 2019 - The stakes are big, but the games ... not so much.

NBC is offering contestants the opportunity to amass a "Small Fortune" as the network has nabbed a six-episode order of Youngest Media's unscripted competition series. The U.S. series will be based on the popular U.K. format that launched on ITV in February.

"Small Fortune" will see teams of three friends compete in the tiniest of challenges for a chance to win big money. From a shrunk down Oval Office ("The Waste Wing") to a mini Arc de Triomphe ("Arc de Wee-Omph") each team must prove their skills on playing fields that have been squeezed down to the size of a dollhouse. Challenges will require considerable dexterity and intense focus because with games this small, there's no room for error as the slightest miscalculation or tremble may result in elimination.

"'Small Fortune' is a quirky, clever and hilarious concept with a surprising level of intensity that will keep viewers in suspense," said Meredith Ahr, President, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. "As soon as we saw the format in action, we knew we wanted to bring it to NBC. It proves that the simplest format can often pack the biggest punch."

"NBC have been big fans of our little show from day one and their enthusiasm makes them the perfect partner in the U.S.," said David Flynn and Lucas Church, co-founders of Youngest Media. "We can't wait to bring the world's smallest gameshow to the biggest market in television."

To take home the ultimate Small Fortune, teams that make it to the end must tackle one last teeny-tiny but epic game. If players can control their nerves and avoid the slightest mistake they will walk away with a big cash prize.

As the saying goes, good things come in small packages.

"Small Fortune" will be co-produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio and entertainment studio Youngest Media, which created and produced the U.K. format. Lucas Church and David Flynn will serve as executive producers for Youngest Media alongside Michael Binkow, who will serve as executive producer and showrunner for the series.
