Before it became known primarily for its made-for-TV movies, Lifetime Channel had a variety of programming across many genres, including a game show that debuted on this day in history.
Debt debuted on the cable network Lifetime on June 3rd, 1996. It was hosted by longtime gameshow alum Wink Martindale, known for hosting shows like Tic Tac Dough.
The concept of the show involved players competing against each other and answering questions in an attempt to get their debts paid off.
The show aired through 1998. It was known as one of the last new gameshows to use traditional, non-digital set elements such as trilons and eggcrate displays.
