Millions Dollars, But...
What would you do for a million dollars? That’s the big question in Million Dollars, But…, a hilarious show that pushes three participants to discover just how far their friends – and themselves – will go to earn hypothetical cash. After giving a ludicrous scenario in which their fellow players can earn a million dollars, the show’s participants have a roundtable discussion weighing the potential benefits and drawbacks of their decision. Those sound bites are then reenacted and presented in cinematic scenes to show the hilarious lengths people will go to for a big payout.
Master and Apprentice
Master and Apprentice follows Marcus LaPorte, a production designer with 17 years experience, and Adam Ellis, a novice cosplay-maker, as they tackle making a pop culture prop, from scratch, every episode.
