NBC is offering contestants the opportunity to amass large sums of money on the smallest of scales in tiny new game show “Small Fortune.” The U.S. series will be based on Youngest Media’s popular U.K. format that launched on ITV. Dynamic comedian, actor, writer and producer Lil Rel Howery will host the new game show and serve as an executive producer.
“Small Fortune” will see teams of three friends compete in the tiniest of challenges for a chance to win big money. In order to win, players must face heart-pounding tasks set in real-world destinations that test their precision and technique. From a shrunken sushi conveyor belt with tiny chopsticks (“Shrunken Sushi”) to a mini Ellis Island (“Statue of Liberteeny”), each team must prove their skills on miniature playing fields. Challenges will require considerable dexterity and intense focus because with games this small, there’s no room for error as the slightest miscalculation or tremble may result in elimination.
To take home the ultimate Small Fortune, teams that make it to the end must tackle one last teeny-tiny but epic game. If players can control their nerves and avoid the slightest mistake, they will walk away with a big cash prize.
“Small Fortune” will be co-produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio and entertainment studio Youngest Media, which created and produced the U.K. format.
Lucas Church and David Flynn will serve as executive producers for Youngest Media alongside Steve Barry and Joe Braswell, who will serve as executive producers for Kelchris Media and showrunners for the series. Lil Rel Howery will also executive produce.
