On Tuesday night’s episode, sisters Jennifer & Rebecca Albano in Miami are given one hour to hide a briefcase worth $100,000. Once that time is up, they’re taken into custody by local police detectives Jorge Montero & Manuel Muñoz and brought to investigative headquarters. Over the next 48 hours, the detectives will work with professional interrogators – Detective Paul Bishop and Deputy District Attorney/best-selling author Mary Hanlon Stone – to combine efforts and determine the location of the briefcase. All they’ll have to go on are cell phone calls, any receipts and GPS coordinates from the players’ car. The rest will be learned from two days and nights of grueling interrogations and extensive field work. If the two detectives can find the briefcase within 48 hours, they’ll keep the money. If not, the two players keep the $100,000. Combining elements of an edge-of-your-seat investigative drama with the excitement of real people attempting to outwit high-level detectives and interrogators, “Take the Money & Run” takes reality television to a whole new level.

Deputy District Attorney and best-selling author Mary Hanlon Stone (www.maryhanlonstone.com) joined California’s District Attorney’s Office, where she specialized in domestic violence and sexual assault prosecutions.
