Hulu Announces First Game Show “Money Where Your Mouth Is”
Netflix has had some major success with their original productions like House of Cards and Hemlock Grove. Hulu is getting into the originals game also, and it’s eclipsing over to our genre. Believe Entertainment Group and Hulu have announced the production of Money Where Your Mouth Is, a game show for the man’s man. The series, hosted by comedian Jay Mohr, sees lifelong friends wager their most prized possessions and go head-to-head in trivia, physical challenges, and even debate…all on things all men should know.
“Our new show is a way for guys to take all that pent-up ‘man knowledge’ and use it to compete with their friends to win their most prized possessions,” said Jay Mohr. “It’s stuff our wives and girlfriends consider utterly useless, but we know as guys is critically important stuff like building furniture without instructions, knowing every sports stat and movie or TV quote known to mankind and finally settling age-old man-debates like what’s the harder job, swimsuit model or runway model. In the end it’s all about guys proving their manhood and having bragging rights over their buddies.”
Money Where Your Mouth Is will be able to be watched on ad-supported Hulu, Hulu Plus, and on mobile, tablet, and smart TV devices. It will debut later in 2013. Does this sound like something you’d watch> It’s always great to see some innovation in our genre. I hope it works out and opens more doors.
