ABC execs are gambling on a new high-stakes game show set on top of a skyscraper. In ‘Downfall’ players will answer trivia questions on top of a giant building in a major metropolitan city for a cool $1 million dollars in cash and prizes according to The Hollywood Reporter.

On the show, contestants will answer a series of trivia questions or risk watching their winnings being blown away (literally). Contestants may also take a controlled plunge, but those details remain sketchy.

It’s no secret that the economy is in a tailspin but there must be an easier way to make money than bungee jumping off of a giant skyscraper.

“‘Downfall’ is a new hybrid, high-stakes field game show where fearless contestants have to fight and focus hard to keep their winnings from falling off the side of a building,” said producer Scott St. John.

ABC has ordered an unspecified number of episodes from veteran game show producers Fremantle Media, and the show is slated for summer.
