Trump looks for TV Monopoly

  • 6comments

The real estate mogul who brought TV The Apprentice is making a deal to bring the classic board game Monopoly to the small screen. Hasbro is teaming with Trump and 30 Days producer R.J. Cutler to create a real-estate themed reality contest. Cutler and Trump are shopping the show to the Big Four networks next week.

While details of the game show are sketchy, Variety speculates it will feature Trump's many properties across the US, including those in Atlantic City, the original setting of the game. It is still unknown whether or not Trump will make an appearance on screen.

In addition to producing the Morgan Spurlock reality show 30 Days, Cutler has been involved in TLC's Flip That House! and FX's Black.White.

Trump's Apprentice, meanwhile, is suffering from viewer fatigue. The fifth-season finale, which aired Monday night, was down 23 percent from the fourth-season finale. Still, that was up 16 percent in total viewers over the season average.

Apprentice Six, returning to the airwaves in January 2007, will take place in Los Angeles.
