Deal Or No Deal - Orlando (2018) Host Profile
Deal or No Deal has re-invented the career of Howie Mandel, a comedian who was well-known for his stand-up act before spreading his wings playing Dr. Wayne Fiscus on the acclaimed medical drama St. Elsewhere. Mandel had a short-lived talk show, The Howie Mandel Show, but it proved unsuccessful after just two seasons. With Deal or No Deal, the comic actor has displayed yet another talent that of game show host. And NBC has also rewarded him with another TV show, the prank show Howie Do It. Once sporting a full head of curly hair, after suffering from hair loss, Mandel's look now is a shaved head and even a goatee at times.
Deal Or No Deal - Orlando (2018) Background
Deal or No Deal features models who hold briefcases containing various amounts of money. The contestant on the show gradually eliminates the cases with the ultimate goal of winning an enormous sum of money. During this process, the contestant goes toe-to-toe with the character of "the banker," an unseen person who offers a set amount of money in order to tempt the contestant to give up and quit the game. Once the banker makes an offer, Howie then asks: "Deal, or no deal?" Because of the show's popularity, it often airs more than once a week in primetime, and it has spawned a daytime TV incarnation, as well as various play-at-home game versions.
Debuting on NBC in late 2005, the TV program Deal or No Deal became an instant smash for the network. The TV show is hosted by actor/comedian Howie Mandel and is yet another version of the TV game show of the same name that is internationally recognized because dozens of other countries have their very own Deal or No Deal TV programs.
Previously filmed in Los Angeles, Deal Or No Deal first moved to Waterford, Connecticut and then to Orlando in Florida. NBC Universal re-located the Deal Or No Deal TV show to save on production costs. L.A. and NYC may miss Howie Mandel and his popular TV game show, but the Orlando area has gained a great TV show.
Deal or No Deal first took residence in Connecticut in the summer of 2008 and taped a whopping 130 episodes in just three months at Waterford's Sonalysts Studio, filming as many as 10 episodes per day! (Which must have been difficult for host Howie Mandel, who is known for his OCD and phobias that keep him from even being able to shake the hands of Deal Or No Deal contestants.) The episodes filmed in CT were for the new syndicated half-hour version of the TV show. Following the initial three-month taping schedule in 2009, Deal Or No Deal took a break from production to see how the show would fare in syndication before scheduling more taping sessions.
After being cancelled by NBC almost a decade prior, "Deal or No Deal" is returning with its iconic host Howie Mandel on CNBC. The new show is set to air in late 2018. 30 new one-hour episodes will be taped in Orlando for the 2018 season.
