Actor and financial enthusiast Ben Stein will star in a reincarnation of his old show which was called "Win Ben Stein's Money" and which ran from the late 1990s to 2002. This show, a scaled down version, will feature more in the way of witty banter and less in the way of actual prizes and money.

"The times dictate that we present a different show, but that doesn't mean we can't still have fun" said Stein in his usual witty monotone. "We plan to have lots of good questions, funny comments, and prizes ranging from a year's supply of rubber bands to a free blood pressure check at a medical clinic of the contestant's choice. Or the contestant can choose an IOU from me worth anywhere from several to 20 dollars. It's gonna be wild!"

The co host for the show is still being decided, but former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan is being considered because his personality is far more "off the wall than Stein's and would be a good complement."

Any donations of set pieces for the show would be appreciated.
