Joe Manganiello, known for “True Blood” and “Magic Mike,” will host “Deal or No Deal Island,” a twist on the classic game. In this series, 13 players will be transported to the elusive Banker’s private island to compete for cash.

Through thrilling challenges, mind-bending dilemmas and the classic “Deal or No Deal” game, Manganiello will lead the game play, relay the banker’s offers and guide players as they grapple with the toughest decisions of their lives.

“When we took the show out of the studio and transported the game to the Banker’s island, Joe was the obvious choice,” said Corie Henson, executive vice president of unscripted content at NBCUniversal Entertainment, in a statement. “He loves all kinds of games, lives for adventure and isn’t afraid to stare down a snake or two to help players win a life-changing payday and, hopefully, beat the Banker at his own game.”

The island will contain the iconic briefcases with millions in prize money split between them. Players in each episode will try to get the highest-value briefcase for a chance to gain immunity and choose a fellow player to enter “The Temple,” where a high-stakes game of “Deal or No Deal” will take place. The last player standing by the end of the season will face off against the banker to potentially win the biggest prize in “Deal or No Deal” history.

Since “Deal or No Deal” first launched in the Netherlands in 2002, it has been commissioned in more than 80 territories worldwide, with over 350 productions.

The series is produced by Endemol Shine North America. Howie Mandel executive produces the series, along with Matt Kunitz, Matt Apps, Sarah Happel Jackson, Howie Mandel and Endemol Shine North America’s Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre and Sean Loughlin.
