Synopsis

If you and a friend were handed a million dollars in cash and only had to answer a few simple questions to keep it, could you do it?

Million Dollar Money Drop, the ultimate high-stakes game show, created and produced by Endemol, the masterminds behind Deal or No Deal, gives a team $1-million in cold, hard cash and all they have to do to keep it is correctly answer seven multiple-choice questions.

Actor and comedian Kevin Pollak hosts the suspense-filled game show.

During each game, two contestants work together as a team to beat one of the most difficult challenges of their lives: saving the million-dollar mountain of cash in front of them from disappearing forever.

Unlike any other game show, the duo is given their prize money - bundles of real cash totaling $1-million - at the start of the game, and it's up to them to keep this life-changing cash.

Once the question is revealed, the duo must debate and decide the answer(s) on which they will risk all of their money.

Are they confident enough to place all of their money on one answer? Or will the relentless pressure cause them play it safe and spread their money across a few answers?
