GSN Acquires Off Network Rights To MINUTE TO WIN IT
GSN announced it has acquired off-network rights to 68 one-hour episodes of the hit game show MINUTE TO WIN IT from NBCUniversal Cable & New Media Distribution. Hosted by All-American chef and television personality Guy Fieri (“Diners, Drive-ins and Dives”), the game features competitors participating in a series of simple, yet nerve-wracking, games that can lead to a $1 million prize. MINUTE TO WIN IT will air in four-hour blocks on Tuesday nights from 7 pm to 11 pm (ET) on GSN beginning on Tuesday, July 24 at 7 pm (ET).
“MINUTE TO WIN IT is a great addition to our line-up,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, Executive Vice President of Programming for GSN. “Fun, entertaining and competitive – this game show brings all the elements that resonate with our core audience.”
“GSN, with its emphasis on interactive games, is a perfect home for MINUTE TO WIN IT,” said Todd Whiting, Senior Vice President, Cable & New Media Distribution. “We are excited to watch it succeed on the network.”
MINUTE TO WIN IT was awarded the C21/Frapa Award for Best Studio Based Game show format at the 2010 Mipcom television festival in Cannes.
