GSN picks up Shine’s ‘Minute to Win It’

Cabler orders 40 episodes of former NBC gameshow

Minute to Win It” is back and heading to cable, as GSN ordered 40 hourlong episodes of the program from Shine America.

Gameshow originally debuted in 2010 on NBC’s primetime lineup and challenged contestants to 60-second tasks using everyday household items to win money. Peacock cancelled the program last May, and reruns began airing on GSN.

Reruns proved successful for the cabler, as “Minute to Win It” ranks as GSN’s top program among viewers 2-17 and 18-34. In the revival of the gameshow slated to debut on GSN later this year, stakes will be a bit lower, with cash prizes topping out at $100,000, as opposed to the upwards of $1,000,000 offered on the NBC iteration.

” ‘Minute to Win It’ is a buzzy, addictive and social media-friendly show and we are excited to be producing 40 new hourlong episodes,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, GSN’s exec veep of programming.
