So much money. So much at stake. So little time
One neighbourhood. One hundred families. $1 million dollars. Over the course of just ten weeks, the financially struggling residents of one neighbourhood will attempt to raise their collective net worth by a staggering $1 million dollars. Guided by the financial expert hosts and assisted by a team of Money Detectives, the neighbourhood will strive to earn or save $100,000 a week in a series of epic community and individual challenges related to food, housing, transportation and other costs. If they succeed, the financial lessons they’ve learned – along with a chance at a weekly prize of $10,000 and a grand prize of $100,000 – will change their lives forever.
