It’s a mad dash for cash in Netflix’s upcoming reality series “Run for the Money,” an expansion of the 2004 Japanese show of the same name.

The series will bring together 29 various celebrities to compete for a cash prize. Their goal is to avoid being caught by the squadron of suit- and mask-clad Hunters before time runs out. The longer they survive, the larger the prize. Those who fail get nothing and are disqualified. 

Some of the announced cast members include actors like Jiro Sato and Hiroe Igeta, athletes like soccer player Yoshito Okubo and idols Miku Kanemura of the J-pop girl group Hinatazaka46 and Sukai Kinjo of the boy group JO1, among others.  

In the trailers, the participants are seen frantically trying to escape the Hunters as they pursue them on land, sea and even through the sky as they jump out of a plane. 

A narrator in the trailer also reveals that “a devastating trap at the end keeps them from what they desire” and a mole among the contestants.

Netflix’s “Run for the Money” will premiere on Nov. 15.
