The Million Second Quiz is set to change the way we look at game shows. It has been produced by All3Media America at will be shown on NBC starting September 9, 2013. It may become very popular with social media and because of its very own Million Second Quiz App.
“The show follows a group of contestants who compete for up to $10 million in a quiz competition across 1,000,000 seconds, or about eleven and a half days”. The new game show is hosted by Ryan Seacrest.
Robert Hayes, the NBC executive vice president of digital media, commented on the interactive show,
“many discussions were about how the show needed to live beyond the hour long primetime broadcast and to live 24/7. With mobile growing significantly over the past few years and twitter being one of the largest platforms for entertainment conversations, it was a no-brainer to leverage that platform as one of the digital tent poles for engagement”.
“NBC has cast its resources to all the corners of social media platforms, from Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Facebook, Tumblr and YouTube. The commitment and effort couldn’t be better but as for the success NBC hope to achieve, only time will tell”.
