Britain's "Small Fortune" coming to NBC?

Have you ever watched "Beat the Clock" or "Minute to Win It" and thought to yourself ... these shows would be a lot better if the stunts involved miniatures? Well ...

NBC has reportedly green-lit a U.S. version of "Small Fortune", the British game show of stunts and miniatures that premiered on ITV earlier this month.

Why can't you be big about this?

Seriously, I'm very curious that a show that's only been on the air for literally 2 weeks got picked up, especially with such an odd premise. How do they follow the action, anyway? Well, there's gotta be something to this that NBC really liked.

The shot is zoomed in and very steady.

I watched the original article and found it adorable, and it managed to walk the tightrope of big money that has to be earned.

The fact that you called it adorable scares me. I've never heard you use that word ever in all the time I've known you.

I'll bet there is a surprise charm to it, though. Look at all the fun they have on LMAD these days with the mini curtains and teeny tiny boxes. If the million dollar task is pull the ship out of the bottle, though, all bets are off.
