third For Love or Money will debut this summer on NBC with “an all-new game.”
NBC’s reality TV strategy seems to involve producing an occasional big hit, and then filling the rest of the schedule with photocopies of its less-successful series. Following the first two seasons of For Love or Money will be a third edition that will air this summer. Debuting June 7, it “again centers on 15 beautiful women who will compete for the affections of one lucky man,” NBC’s adjective-heavy press release says. Twelve episodes of the show will air this time, making room for “an all-new game and a whole new twist” wherein “the price of love is even greater.”
