It has been made famous in the UK by Saturday night's king of the gunge tank, Noel Edmonds, and now America will have another chance to peep inside the red briefcases for a chance to win $1 million.
CNBC has signed a deal with Endemol Shine North America for new episodes of the game show Deal or No Deal, with its original host Howie Mandel. Deal or No Deal first aired in America from 2005 to 2009 on NBC but the St Elsewhere actor and recent America’s Got Talent judge is back for a new run.
“Having been in this business for 40 years, I’ve been involved in every kind of production – live, variety, drama, film and animation," said Mandel. "Nothing changed my life, career and perception of humanity more than one project, and that was Deal or No Deal.
"I am excited to re-embark on the most thrilling, life-changing show with the brilliant Scott St. John and our new partners at CNBC.”
Deal or No Deal originated in the Netherlands in 2000 and has since been broadcast in over 50 countries around the world.
