TV Auditions

Calling all really smart trivia players!  I was contacted by a casting company that is looking for contestants for a new trivia TV show being produced by Mark Burnett on ABC.  The show is going to consist of Jeopardy! level questions but players can give as many answers as they want in a short period of time, rather than only one.  You need to be pretty knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects and the audition questions are challenging,  I auditioned... I didn't make the cut.  BUT I know that a lot of you know way more than I do, and it would be amazing if a Syracuse Trivia player was on the show.   The details are in the flyer below...unnamed-1
