Channel 4 Recommission Youngest Media's Moneybags

News Image
Following a successful first season, Channel 4 daytime has commissioned a new series of the BAFTA nominated quiz show Moneybags from Youngest Media. The quiz that challenges contestants to literally grab themselves a fortune every afternoon will be back later this year with host Craig Charles.

The series has been recommissioned through Channel 4's Global Format Fund, the ringfenced spend designed to stimulate the creation of original new formats from UK-based indies for UK and International audiences.

Moneybags is a high-stakes quiz that tests contestants' ability to think quickly as they answer each question by grabbing the moneybag with the correct answer as it passes along a conveyor belt in front of them. Those who grab the right answer earn that bag's value, which can be anything from £1,000 to £100,000. But should the wrong bag be picked up contestants risk losing everything. There's an enormous £1 million passing down the conveyor belt each week, and it's up to the contestants to try to grab as much as possible.

The programme has been deemed "a tense, strategic game" by the Daily Mirror following its highly acclaimed first season, of which The Guardian said: "Moneybags is the perfect quiz".

Moneybags will return for a 30-run order of 60-minute programmes, filmed at dock10 studios and commissioned by Jo Street, Channel 4's Head of Daytime and Features and Jayne Stanger, Commissioner, Daytime and Features. The series is produced by Youngest North, Youngest Media's recently launched Leeds based hub, with executive producers Michelle Woods, Aaron Rosenthal, Shaun Parry and David Flynn.

Executive producer David Flynn of Youngest Media said: "After such a well-received first series we're so glad to be bringing the drama, fun and jeopardy of Moneybags back to Channel 4. With £1million on the line once again every week, Craig Charles will challenge more contestants to grab themselves a fortune and change their lives."

Jayne Stanger, Commissioner, Daytime and Features said: "We're so excited to bring back Moneybags after the first series received an amazing reception. It is great to have Craig back on board to give our daytime viewers more quick-fire quizzing and tense moments."
