Endemol Shine NA with SMAC Ent is developing US version of The Money Drop Endemol Shine North America is working with Michael Strahan’s SMAC Entertainment to develop a U.S. version of the hit game show The Money Drop.

Created by Endemol Shine UK’s Remarkable Television, the format (originally titled The Million Pound Drop Live) has been locally produced in 54 global territories, including the U.K., where a second season is airing five days a week as a strip on Channel 4.

Strahan—an NFL Hall of Famer who currently co-hosts Good Morning America and GMA Day and hosts ABC’s The $100,000 Pyramid—will serve as an executive producer on The Money Drop. Endemol Shine North America and SMAC are currently exploring potential prime-time and daytime opportunities, including national syndication, for the series.

“We are thrilled to partner with Michael and the team at SMAC Entertainment to develop an all-new version of The Money Drop for an American audience,” said Michael Weinberg, executive VP of syndication at Endemol Shine North America. “This is a format that has worked successfully all over the world and the game concept itself is a lot of fun and engaging.”

“I was in London the first time I saw Money Drop and I immediately knew we had to help bring it back to the U.S.,” commented Strahan. “On behalf of myself, Constance Schwartz-Morini and the rest of the team at SMAC, we’re excited to take Money Drop to market with the amazing team at Endemol Shine and make it SMAC’s third game show next to The $100,000 Pyramid and The Joker’s Wild.”
