Windfall is an American television serial drama about a group of people in an unnamed small city who win almost $400 million in a lottery. The series premiered on June 8, 2006 on NBC, taking the time slot occupied by ER during the rest of the year.
On August 31, 2006, NBC announced the show's cancellation by stating on its website that the episode that night would be the series finale. Controversially, NBC also gave local affiliates the option of showing pre-season football instead and showing the final episode at each affiliates discretion. Many affiliates took them up on this, planning to show it either much later that night or at other odd days/times during the Labor Day weekend (for example, WNBC-TV in New York planned to show the episode at 12:30pm on September 3, 2006).
The show was developed in early 2005 by Regency Television for Fox. At the time the show was known as Ticket To Ride.After ordering the pilot Fox decided to pass on the series. In June 2005 it was announced that NBC had picked up the series and would be shooting a new pilot. It was also confirmed that co-creator Gwendolyn Parker would no longer be involved with the show as she had moved on to work on Without a Trace.
Windfall ranked 164 for the 2005-06 television season with an average of 5.510 million viewers. Due to the finale episode being preëmpted in many markets it is not even counted among the shows aired in primetime that week and thus there is no ratings for it.
