I am gearing up to watch the season premiere of “The Briefcase” tonight on CBS, I was able to watch a sneakpeak of this show to see what it is all about. Let me tell you what, this is a true testament to human kind; what would you do if you were given a briefcase with money in it and given the choice to keep it all, keep some or keep none? The amount you don’t keep goes to another family who is also in financial need. I got goosebumps watching the preview that CBS and Role Mommy allowed me to watch and am excited to be live Tweeting tonight on Twitter.com as @brandyellen alongside @CBSTweets … join us on Twitter tonight, May 27th at 8pm Eastern and share your thoughts on The Briefcase with us!

Q&A WITH DAVE BROOME, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER OF “THE BRIEFCASE

 

Question:  Dina, My Unentitled Life:  What gave you the idea to come up with a show that helps two different families if they choose to?

Dave:  I like to make shows that have a transformational aspect to them whether they are emotional or physical transformations.  And I’ve always wanted to do something that dealt with values and what matters most in our life.  I was thinking of how to do that in an emotional and a dynamic way, and I used the lottery as an analogy.  Because we all have that dream that if we scratch off that lottery ticket and won, what would we do with that money.  If you have the opportunity to win that lottery with a mirror in your face and you have to look at your life through it.  At the end of the day, that’s what the show is all about.  This has nothing to do with the money.  The money plays a little part in this — what really matters is what matters most to you in your life.  What might you have, what might you be taking for granted as a person inside.

Beth:  In the first episode, you see two families who are incredibly generous to one another.  But does that happen in every episode? Will we see episodes where a family doesn’t give any money away?

Dave:  You will see some disparity in future episodes but the tone doesn’t change from what you’ve seen in the first one.  The reason is that both of these families in every episode go through a tremendous roller coaster ride of not just emotions but evaluation of their life.  And by design, we wanted to pick families that can justify any action they do – there’s no right or wrong.  This show is not meant to judge people’s actions. I believe that half the audience, even in the premiere episode will look at the Bronsons and say these guys are crazy and idiots to give their money away.  And the other half of the audience will say ‘oh yeah, that’s the most generous thing I’ve ever seen in my life.’  They will say the same thing about the Bergins.  That’s what so compelling about every episode – all of these families.

I hope you will watch the above trailer and tune in tonight May 27th at 8pm to The Briefcase on CBS and on Twitter.com to join us in enjoying tonight’s Season Premiere. I cannot wait to see what the families decide to do with the money …. tweet me tonight and tell me what you would do!
