MUMBAI: US broadcaster NBC has announced that its high-stakes version of the international hit game show Deal or No Deal - hosted by actor-comedian Howie Mandel -- will premiere as a four-night event from 19-22 December 2005.

In India, the local version Deal Ya No Deal will premiere on Sony tonight 21 November 2005 at 8:30 pm.

On NBC's show, contestants play and deal for a top prize of $1 million dollars in a match of nerves, instincts and raw intuition. NBC Entertainment president Kevin Reilly says, "Deal or No Deal has a proven international track record and we think it has all the drama and excitement to keep American audiences on the edge of their seats."

Each night, the game of odds and chance unfolds when a contestant is confronted with 26 sealed briefcases full of varying amounts of cash -- ranging from a measly penny to $1 million dollars. Without knowing the amount in each briefcase, the contestant picks one -- his to keep, if he chooses, until its unsealing at game's end.

The pressure mounts as in each round, after a pre-determined number of cases are opened, the participant is tempted by a mysterious entity known only as "The Bank" to accept an offer of cash in exchange for what might be contained in the contestant's chosen briefcase - prompting the show's host to ask the all-important question - Deal or No Deal?

As each case is opened, the likelihood of the player having a valuable cash amount in his or her own case decreases or increases. Viewers will see if truly, fortune favours the bold. The contestant knows that as long as the larger cash prizes haven't been opened, the bank's deals will only get higher. And if the torn contestant accidentally opens a case with a bigger cash value -- The Bank's offer could suddenly vapourise.
