Fox-owned TV stations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, and Baltimore are gearing up to produce a new game show based on the popular board game Trivial Pursuit. According to Variety, the half-hour show will air five times a week.
Trivial Pursuit: America Plays will debut during the 2008 fall season. The show has been picked up by more than 50% of the stations in the U.S. so far. One of the selling points was Hasbro's commitment to shell out for extensive merchandising and promotion in advance of the program's bow.
Trivial Pursuit will be taped in Los Angeles at a studio yet to be determined.
