"QI" (Quite Interesting) is a Rose d'Or-winning and BAFTA-nominated comedy quiz show that airs on BBC America and is hosted by Stephen Fry ("Gosford Park," "Bones").

The panel show is full of quirky facts in which contestants are rewarded more if their answers are "quite interesting." Every season is themed around a different letter of the alphabet and each episode has a different theme on which the celebrity guests have to answer questions, avoiding repeating common misconceptions and urban myths. It's okay to be wrong but don't be obviously, boringly wrong.

Celebrity guests include some of Britain's most eloquent comedians and smartest experts. They include permanent panelist Alan Davies ("Jonathan Creek"), "Top Gear" host Jeremy Clarkson, comedians Katy Brand, Rob Brydon, Jimmy Carr, Bill Bailey and Flight of the Conchords' Rhys Darby, as well as Professor Brian Cox ("Wonders of the Universe").

"QI" was created by executive producer John Lloyd and distributed by FreemantleMedia International.
