"QuizUp" (TV show) is an innovative game show on NBC on which in-studio contestants will try to earn a life-changing fortune by winning high-stakes trivia battles against viewers who qualify from anywhere in the country and play in real-time from home on their mobile devices.

This game is made possible by the collaboration of NBC with Plain Vanilla Corp., the prolific game studio that created the game QuizUp, which is one of the world's most popular trivia apps with more than 75 million users worldwide.

The premise of the show is simple: If the in-studio contestant wins eight trivia battles against eight different competitors who are watching and playing from home, they can win up to $1 million. If any of the at-home players win their battle, they'll win the money allocated to that round.

Qualification to play from home will happen through the hugely popular QuizUp app. QuizUp has reached #1 in the App Store rankings in 128 countries. Even if they don't qualify, the audience at home can play along for fun, with each question and answer synchronized with the broadcast.

Created by Jeff Apploff and Wes Kauble, "QuizUp" is executive produced by Apploff ("Don't Forget the Lyrics") and produced by Universal Television and Apploff Entertainment.
