In 2014 a call went out for Australians based in London to appear on an Aussie version with contestants competing against their very daunting brains trust. But Seven subsequently decided not to proceed.
Now it is understood to be back on the table, casting for a new version here, and there are even suggestions it could replace Million Dollar Minute.
Despite some inroads with $MDM it has not managed to knock Hot Seat from its game-show perch, which in turn impacts on Seven News.
The UK series, which has been airing since 2009, sees contestants try to build cash by outwitting general knowledge questions against a ‘brains trust’ such as Mark Labbett. It has been airing on Seven on weekday afternoons.
Could Million Dollar Minute‘s millionaire champ Andrew Skarbek feature as its resident brains trust….?
