Take the Money and Run I was pretty excited when ABC announced 'Take the Money and Run,' its new reality series from 'The Amazing Race' and 'CSI' producers billed as a spy thriller where professional investigators and regular folks compete for $100,000.

Basically, the real-person contestants have one hour to hide a briefcase with $100,000, and the investigators have 48 hours to find it. If they don't locate it, the contestants win.

'Take the Money and Run' debuts Tue., Aug. 2 at 9PM ET on ABC, but you can watch a preview of the new show after the jump.
