Howie Mandel, the iconic host of CNBC's all new 'Deal or No Deal', announced that the highly anticipated game show will join CNBC's primetime lineup beginning Wednesday, December 5th. The announcement comes as production commences on 30 one-hour episodes currently taping in front of a live studio audience this summer at Universal Orlando Resort. Howie was joined by models Brenda Lowe (12), Vaeda Mann (5) and Malika Miller (18) when he made the announcement.
Premiering almost 10 years after the hit show was last in production, the new series will continue to offer up a high-pressure, high-stakes game of risk and reward, in which contestants face a series of potentially life-altering decisions. With 26 sealed briefcases full of varying amounts of cash – ranging from a penny to $1 million ─ contestants have to decide whether to accept an offer of cash from the mysterious entity known only as "the Banker," in exchange for what might be contained in the contestant's chosen briefcase.
