PokerStars is now offering its Canadian and American players the chance to play for $1 million on a new TV show to air on the FOX television network this fall.

The PokerStars Million Dollar Challenge will begin airing on FOX Oct. 11 featuring a group of online qualifiers taking on a series of celebrity players and Team PokerStars Pros in heads-up matches for a seat at a Dec. 21 grand final with $1 million on the line.

PokerStars is hosting twice daily freerolls at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET until November 25 where the top ten finishers will be invited to submit a two-minute audition video explaining why PokerStars should choose them for a part in the show.

Should a contestant be selected they would battle it out on camera against three different celebrity and Team PokerStars Pro challengers in a series of best-of-three No-Limit Hold'em heads-up matches.

Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu will be on hand to coach and assist the contestants until they make it to the third round, where they will actually play Negreanu for a seat in the final.

Filming begins Sept. 30.

After the Oct. 11 premier, subsequent episodes of The PokerStars Million Dollar Challenge will air Oct. 18, Nov. 22, and Dec. 13 with the grand final set for Dec. 27.

All the episodes will air at 4 p.m. ET.
