CBS is adding an unscripted project into the mix.

Based on an Israeli format co-created by Reshet TV and Tanin Productions' Gili Golan, Adi Golan and Harel Joseffson, Money Pump is a high-pressure game show where contestants compete against an enormous money pump for $1 million.

Kevin Frazier, from omg! Insider, will host.

Andrew Golder will serve as executive producer/showrunner for the ITV Studios America project. Tanin Production & TV Ltd. own the format and will also produce the U.S. version, which is distributed exclusively by Dori Media International GMBH.

Should Money Pump be ordered to series, it would join a veteran crop of competition/game shows at CBS, including The Price Is Right, Let's Make a Deal, Survivor, The Amazing Race, Undercover Boss and Big Brother.

The original Money Pump series aired on Reshet TV in Israel.
