Take the Money and Run is a reality game show that premiered on August 2, 2011 as part of the ABC network's 2011–12 primetime schedule.

The show takes place in various locales around the United States.[1] The series ended with its sixth and final episode on September 6, 2011.

The contestants are loaned an SUV and a cellular phone, and are given one hour to hide the case. At the end of the hour, the contestants are taken into custody and questioned by interrogators in an attempt to locate the case. The contestants are also isolated from each other for the duration of the 48 hours. The detectives are given the GPS recordings of the route that the contestants took in the SUV, telephone records of who they called, and all receipts. If the detectives can locate the case within 48 hours, they are awarded the $100,000. If not, the contestants win the prize.
