This sounds quite interesting from a recent Sky One press release:

Loot starts in a small British town, where eight ordinary citizens are about to play an extraordinary game; they’ve been tipped off that some valuable treasure has been abandoned. If they can lay their hands on it and hide the loot for two weeks from detectives determined to track them down, it’s all theirs to keep. But as news of the missing treasure sweeps through the town and the crack team of detectives gets to work, will these unusual suspects have the cunning and nerve to outwit the investigators? Or will the detectives, using old-fashioned sleuthing techniques combined with modern technology, be their downfall? Produced by Shine TV, the creative director is Tim Whitwell, executive producer is Matt Bennett, series editor Tom Hutchings and the series producers are Gayl Paterson and Ben Allen.

Sounds a bit like Hunted meets Take The Money And Run, and precisely The Sort Of Thing We Like if it’s done well.

Haven’t heard anything about Wild Things S4, which suggests to me it isn’t happening. Shame. It’s currently showing on Challenge on Sundays if you didn’t get to see it on Sky One, and you should watch it as it’s the most entertaining physical comedy game of the last five years or more.

    Not to be overly cynical, but this does sound like something you could definitely stick a Prisoner’s Dilemma onto the end of.

    Does sound interesting. Unlike the idea of Jeremy Clarkson hosting a revival of Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

    The tone of the show is going to be key- I’m thinking it should be more comedic than dramatic (in the vein of It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and movies like that)
