CNBC’s Deal or No Deal reboot with Howie Mandel bows Wednesday, December 5, at 8p. Steven Weinstock and Glenda Hersh, Co-Presidents/CEOs of Truly Original and Deal or No Deal EPs, says “Together with CNBC, we’re bringing viewers everything they loved about the original show – including Howie, some nail-biting gameplay and a fun, diverse relatable group of contestants. We’ve also introduced new elements like the ‘counteroffer,’ which contestants can use once each game, and a female banker. It was critical for all of us that the scale of the production be even bigger than before, while still delivering the same Deal or No Deal that captivated audiences 10 years ago. We’ve gone to great lengths to make that happen and are all truly excited to watch Howie in his element, rooting for people from all walks of life as they get a chance to win life-altering prize money.”
