SciFi – Run for the Money

SF Universe – Ever see Running Man? The movie about a gameshow where prisoners run for their lives while being chased by themed hunters who are out to kill them?Before you laugh, check out the description of the new SCI FI Channel Game/Reality Show, Run for the Money.

Run For Money is an action-packed, edge-of-your-seat reality competition show that pits a group of contestants against each other in the quest for cash prizes, while being stalked by relentless “hunters.” Based on a successful Japanese format from Fuji Television, the action takes place over 60 minutes of real time in various landmark locations. As the clock winds down, the competition gets harder as more hunters appear on the streets, the game perimeter gets smaller, and tasks are assigned that test fraying nerves. Contestants earn money for every second they “stay alive” and may opt out at their choosing. If they keep playing and are overrun by a hunter, they lose everything. The last person standing takes the prize.

Apparently the only difference between this show and Running Man is that the players don’t actually die if a hunter catches up to them. Hmm. . .note to potential contestants — read the fine print before you sign.

Production begins in January in Los Angeles.
