First Look: ABC's 'Take the Money and Run'

Take the Money and RunI was pretty excited when ABC announced 'Take the Money and Run,' its new reality series from 'The Amazing Race' and 'CSI' producers billed as a spy thriller where professional investigators and regular folks compete for $100,000.

Now that ABC has released the first promo for the new series and we have a better idea of what, exactly, contestants are doing, I'm just as pumped for the show's August debut. Basically, the real-person contestants have one hour to hide a briefcase with $100,000, and the investigators have 48 hours to find it. If they don't locate it, the contestants win. If they do, they win.

While the premise alone isn't as exciting as I had hoped, I'm certain there will be plenty of spy-related challenges involved. Who doesn't love a good caper?

'Take the Money and Run' debuts Tue., Aug. 2 at 9PM ET on ABC, but you can watch a preview of the new show after the jump.



What do you think of the preview? Will you watch?

I made Chief in the old Navy, when the initiation involved days of hazing, culminating in an all-day session of non-stop harassment. About an hour into that last day, I suddenly realized it was all "no harm" and I was supposed to be enjoying it, too. It suddenly got easy and, yes, fun! Taking an attitude like that into this show, I would NEVER break under their questions. The threats are all pretend -- mind games. As soon as they make a threat, you just mentally spray it with BS Remover and it goes away. :-)

This show is an absolute bore. The "cops" are WEIRD. Creepy, actually.
Can't wait until the show ends.

I watched the whole show last night. OMG! That pathetic punk will have to live the rest of his life out knowing he sold his brother and his mother out. He will never ever live this down, not even if he could write a check for the mother and brother for the money he caused them to lose. Well, It's not like the physical condition of his body didn't tell the tale of his minds strength, and who would fail at this task. All he had to do was keep telling himself this is not real jail it's a tv show. One thing for sure is, Now his brothr knows if he should ever get in real trouble, his brother will sell him out. Ironic thing about all this is he still did not go home in twenty minutes as promised.
I have seen kids stand stronger in a lie then that pu**y.

Yes, I will watch this. I know what I would do, and I know for sure that the briefcase would never be found within 48 hours.
