With a lot of money on the line, in this game you don't have to be the smartest person in the room to win, you just have to convince everyone that you are." Christopher Potts and Jonty Nash are behind the project, which is filming in New Mexico for a summer premiere. David Friedman, David Eilenberg and Simon Thomas will also executive produce for ITV America with Alan Carter directing. (Deadline.com)
