Channel 4 Orders More Moneybags

Channel 4 has commissioned a new season of the BAFTA-nominated quiz show Moneybags from Youngest Media.

The series, which has been recommissioned through Channel 4’s Global Format Fund, is a high-stakes quiz that tests contestants’ ability to think quickly as they answer each question by grabbing the moneybag with the correct answer as it passes along a conveyor belt. Moneybags is hosted by Craig Charles.

In the show, those who grab the right answer earn that bag’s value, which can be anything from £1,000 ($1,200) to £100,000 ($120,000). If they pick up the wrong bag, however, contestants risk losing everything.

Moneybags, which is filmed at dock10 studios, is produced by Youngest North, Youngest Media’s recently launched Leeds-based hub.

Executive producer David Flynn of Youngest Media said: “After such a well-received first series, we’re so glad to be bringing the drama, fun and jeopardy of Moneybags back to Channel 4. With £1 million ($1.2 million) on the line once again every week, Craig Charles will challenge more contestants to grab themselves a fortune and change their lives.”

Jayne Stanger, commissioner of daytime and features at Channel 4, said: “We’re so excited to bring back Moneybags after the first series received an amazing reception. It is great to have Craig back on board to give our daytime viewers more quick-fire quizzing and tense moments.”
