Twelve-year-old Trinitee Stokes (Disney Channel’s “K.C. Undercover”) is set to host this fast-paced trivia show, with live commentary and real-time game results seen exclusively on Disney Channel.
Kimberly Hicks, vice president, Digital Media, Disney Channel, said, “We continually look to leverage the most current technology in ways that enable our viewers to have active roles within live linear TV. ‘Disney QUIZney’ invites kids and families to be active participants in a live game show in a new and exciting way.”
“Disney QUIZney” provides Disney Channel viewers, ages 6 and older, a chance to test their skills as contestants through a simultaneous interactive experience on DisneyNOW. Fast paced questions challenge participants to answer Disney Channel and Disney heritage trivia for a chance to win $100. Every show features five trivia questions that home viewers must answer within 25 seconds on DisneyNOW. Questions increase in difficulty with each round.
“Disney QUIZney” is available in the U.S., and only players age 6 and older will be eligible to win prizes. No purchase is necessary, and children under the age of 18 must get their parent’s permission to enter. The DisneyNOW app is available on iOS, Android and Kindle platforms. Past games will be available for free-play on all DisneyNOW apps after they air, but only the live trivia shows debuting weeknights at 9 p.m. EDT and 6 p.m. PDT will offer cash prizing.
