Produced by Dave Broome, the creator and executive producer of The Biggest Loser, the weekly show features two financially downtrodden families given a briefcase worth $101,000 and they must decide how much money, if any, they are willing to give to the other family and how much they will keep for themselves.

This social experimental reality show will be an interesting one to watch to see what the families will decide to do when they are faced with a real-life scenario where their humanity, scruples and moral values are put to the ultimate emotional test.
