Good new for Channel 7 with news that Million Dollar Minute will air in New Zealand.

“All of us at Million Dollar Minute sense a real buzz about the show as it gains momentum and we continue to see people winning extraordinary amounts of money every week,” Reeve said. “The fact that MDM has now been picked up in New Zealand speaks highly of the format – it is compelling and really entertaining. Life changing wins happen before our eyes on Million Dollar Minute and being around that energy is an adrenalin ride for the contestant, the viewer and the people who work on the show.”
