This was in the ABC casting site, and there were many more casting notices for SF Bay Area, suggesting that may be the first stop.

Quote

And this as well from EW:

ABC books new reality series from Jerry Bruckheimer
by Lynette Rice

Sure, it may share the same title of the 1969 mockumentary, but don’t go looking for Woody Allen’s Virgil Starkwell anywhere: ABC is expected to announce that it will air a new competition show from Jerry Bruckheimer called Take the Money and Run. The show will bow on Thursday, April 14 and air for six weeks through May 19. It is expected to replace Wipeout, which will have completed its winter run.

The unscripted series, which was previously dubbed Catch Me, features teammates competing in an adrenaline-fueled adventure game. Bertram Van Munster, who executive produces The Amazing Race with Bruckheimer, will also serve as an EP on Run.

Looks like we have a date!

ABC Says ‘Take the Money and Run’
09 Feb 2011 : 
 
It has been announced that US network, ABC will launch the American format of Wild Rover’s show, ‘Take the Money and Run’ on April 14th. The format, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, was originally developed by Wild Rover’s Philip Morrow alongside Matthew Worthy and Kieran Doherty.

Jerry Bruckheimer, the US producer behind ‘CSI’ and ‘The Amazing Race’, teamed with ‘Amazing Race’ creator Bertram van Munster to produce six episodes for US network ABC and the show has now nabbed the network’s in the 8pm Thursday time-slot.

‘Take the Money and Run’ was created by Wild Rover’s Philip Morrow (Secret Fortune), Matthew Worthy (Scratch and Sniff’s Den of Doom) and Kieran Doherty (writer, Sesame Tree). The series is a game of cat and mouse between a pair of two-people teams. In a previous interview with IFTN Philip Morrow did not wish to give anything away about the show’s concept, but did tell us that the series will challenge participants to commit the perfect crime and get away with it. The winning team will walk away with $100,000.

The ABC series’ executive producers are Jerry Bruckheimer, multi Emmy winners Bertram van Munster (The Amazing Race), Elise Doganieri (The Amazing Race Asia), Jonathan Littman (Chase) and Philip Morrow. The series is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television, Profiles TV and Horizon Alternative TV.

Wild Rover productions have retained UK and Ireland rights to the format and, when asked if Irish and British audiences can expect to see a home-grown version of the show Philip told IFTN he was optimistic this will be the case “Indeed, we’re seeing a growth in the level of interest in the format, on the back of ABC using it.” he explained.

I just saw a promo for this on Expedition Impossible. Did it not air in April? It said it was supposed to start in August.

This idea is from BVM as far as I know and is an unscripted show where one team takes the money and runs and the other team is supposed to track them down and catch them.

That link says it starts at 8 but it is 8 now and Wipeout is on. I saw a promo during Wipeout that said TTMAR actually starts at 9PM.
Now I can stop watching Wipeout and wait till 9 :lol:

Re: Take the Money and Run *Spoilers*

SPOILERS!

I like this show as a whole. It is an interesting concept that will keep me watching this season. As far as episode one I guessed from the beginning that the cops would win based on the poor strategy set up by the brothers. They did not really seem to know what they were doing so they chose to drive around randomly and then pick some place to shallowly bury it in the dirt. Not only that but Paul was so unprepared mentally that he took the whole interrogation too seriously and gave in.
Hopefully the next couple will be better strategizers and make it a little more of an even game. The prize should really go to the interrogators though, as they seemed to do most of the investigating as well.

I thought this episode was much better than the first. Jimmy and Zuly were an extremely smart pair from start to finish. Watching their interrogations was both entertaining and refreshing because they actually did not take the interrogators' bluffs so seriously. The detectives (can't remember their names) I thought were quite clueless the entire time, partly because Jim and Zuly had left no leads, and partly because the detectives expected the interrogators to do everything. But Paul was completed focused on the 119 street stuff the entire time and refused to waver, especially with his silly lie detector tests :lol: But the detectives also did not thoroughly investigate the Bridgette lead, I thought.
All in all, it was a good episode. Can't wait for next time, with the "wild goose chase" :lol:

I forgot to post about last week. :lol:

The two sisters tried to make a very complicated route and dumped the case out on the side of the road. However the detectives were able to analyze the route easily and pinpointed the spot where they must have hid it. The interrogations were not very productive. However, because of dedication to footwork the detectives found the case on their own.

I thought the detectives definitely deserved to win this round because they were much more diligent than any of the other detectives so far. I liked their attitudes a lot and found myself annoyed by the sisters. Another good episode. :tup:

I loved the detectives on this episode. It is just what a detective should do. By contrast, those detectives on EP2 seemed to be waiting for death. :lol:

I thought this episode was kind of off. The two criminals were emotionally and mentally unstable and didn't deserve to win. I'm glad they didn't, but the detectives were blah. :P Hope the next one is better.

Last night's episode was another disappointment. What kind of loser gets so caught up with his story telling and the nice woman listening to him, that he completely spills the beans about where they hid the money? Without even being pressed much about it?  :groan:

The hiders also wasted over half of their time trying to hide the case on the roof of a building when they had no ladder and no immediate hope of getting inside the building to access the roof. Their eventual solution of hiding the money with a realtor friend seemed a good one at first glance. However, since they had a property listed for sale with the realtor and they had driven past the office, I think the cops would have eventually checked the realtor out even if the father had kept his big mouth shut.

I'll probably check out future episodes if I happen to be watching TV when it's on, but from the 2 or 3 episodes I've seen, Take The Money And Run isn't very good and needs quite a bit of tweaking. Or at least better casting.

Here's a link to interrogator Paul Bishop's blog. He has some occasional insights about episodes of the show.

The show doesn't suck but I agree with Plaidmoon, it needs better casting. I can't believe how bad people are at this. How hard can it be to hide it somewhere and then keep your mouth shut for two days? Instead out of five episodes we have had three contestants give up the answer :groan:

However if they only casted really smart people then the detectives job would be next to impossible. Why would they have ever thought to look in that guy's office if he had not told them where to look? There were hundreds of apartments and stores, etc. on their route.

So maybe it is a dead end idea.

Raul, one contestant from EP1, told the fans on Facebook that there was a lot of things that didn't show in an episode. There must be many things that we can't know...
