The Money Pump is a thrilling and innovative high-tech prime time game show, featuring two contestants fighting together against a huge money pump in order to walk away with a cash prize.
The contestants must answer eight trivia questions correctly before the money pump sucks the money away out of a large high-tech hemisphere booth. The contestants have a constant dilemma: while they think of the answer, the pump is pumping out the prize money, so the sooner they answer, the sooner the money pump stops pumping.
One of the strongest elements of this game show, is that the machine (the Money Pump) is talking (V.O) with both the host and the contestants in the studio. A famous comedian makes the V.O of the machine. This element makes the show funny, entertaining and light for the whole family to watch.
