"QuizUp", is a game show based on the popular trivia app. This game show will keep the multi-player format of the trivia app. In-studio contestants will try to win eight trivia battles against viewers who play in real-time from home on their mobile devices. If the in-studio contestant wins all eight rounds against eight different at-home competitors, they can win up to $1 million. Any of the at-home players who win their battle will walk away with the money allocated to that round.
To qualify for a spot as an in-studio or at-home contestant on the show, candidates will have to successfully pass a trivia quiz that would be generated anew every week. Branded as NBC QuizUp, it will be linked through the main QuizUp app, which has more than 75 million users and has reached No. 1 in App Store rankings in 128 countries, according to NBC. Even if they don't qualify or don't take the mobile quiz, viewers at home will be able to play along while watching (live or on DVR), with each question and answer synchronized with the broadcast via the QuizUp app.
