A briefly-worded Press Release indicates the show is “internally developed” by Seven and will see contestants “face off in a battle of general knowledge with the chance to win one million dollars.”
A CBS format of the same name sees contestants start out with $1m and have 60 seconds to answer 10 general knowledge questions but if they get one answer wrong they walk away with nothing. The clock stops when the contestant acknowledges they have an answer, and for tough questions they can “buy” an answer or multiple choice options, which sees the cash pool drop accordingly. As far as I can tell hasn’t aired anywhere as a series just yet.
Updated: Seven has confirmed the two shows are unrelated, despite them both offering $1M in 1 minute.
Seven is yet to confirm a premiere date and timeslot. Who knows if they will hit gold with this one, and what the new show means for Deal‘s outlook?
