Bravo signs 'Paycheck' for game show


Cable network Bravo has given a pilot pickup to "Paycheck," a game show that challenges the cultural bias of first impressions and snap judgments.

In "Paycheck," based on a new U.K. format from IDTV, seven players must guess each other's salaries, based on questions about pop culture, observations about their opponents, surprising and revealing "factoids" about each player and their own intuition. The player who matches all six opponents to their correct salaries can win as much as $25,000.

Picture This Television, the producers behind Bravo's Emmy-nominated series "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List," will produce the pilot, with Bryan Scott and Marcia Mule serving as executive producers. Picture This TV also produces Bravo's "Celebrity Poker Showdown."

It's yet to be determined whether "Paycheck" will be a half-hour or hourlong project.

Bravo has ordered other game show pilots in the past, but none has made it to series.
