Q: As your week-long game show “Take It All” wraps up, do you find its limited run has been a big part of servicing such expensive winnings as a hovercraft?

A: The issue was that we wanted to give away big prizes and tons of money. They’re giving it a push, in the hope that if this event works -- and I believe it will -- this is just the beginning.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed in the same way as our “Deal or No Deal” experience, and everybody who was on that show is back. I’m partners with all the same people on this, like the other executive producers, our casting people and our set designers. It’s the same team, and we feel like we have found the next new-and-improved game.

Q: Do you have concerns about the game possibly losing some of its luster if it should return on a regular basis?

A: I don’t ... and truth be told, that’s an excellent problem to have. The problem with “Deal or No Deal” and “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” was that they were both so successful, they wore out their welcome.

I only did “Deal or No Deal” for four years, and I did 500 episodes. In the world of one-hour television, shows like “Law & Order,” they only do 22 or 24 episodes a year. And in cable, you might do 10 or 13 episodes a season. Everything runs its course, and “Deal or No Deal” was so successful, it just ran the course a lot faster than most shows. That’s a nice “problem” to have.
