Epic Channel has announced its newest TV show — ‘Epic India Quiz Challenge’ — an India-centric quiz programme. Hosted by anchor, actor and singer Meiyang Chang; the 12-episode season will air from October 14, every Monday at 7pm, with a repeat telecast at 10 pm.
Aimed at challenging the brightest minds between 5th and 10th standards from across the country, the quiz show is built to test their ‘IQ’ or ‘India Quotient’. Teasing and tantalising questions across history, politics, geography, current affairs, mythology, general knowledge, and several diverse disciplines will leave the participants and viewers enriched in various ways.
Shortlisted from 3,000 registrations across 70 cities, 500+ schools battled it out to make it to the sets in Mumbai for the final face-off. Brands like Club Mahindra, Furtado’s School of Music, KidZania and Metz Premium German Televisions (India), partnered with Epic Channel to curate a special set of prizes for the young champions.
Epic India Quiz Challenge adds to the already diverse offerings of the channel. Produced by Optimystix Entertainment India Pvt. Ltd. the show aims to reach out to Indians across the board and enlighten them on the often overlooked intricacies that have shaped the Indian sub-continent.
Chang said, “This was my first time in the quizzing genre, and shooting for this show was among the most fun and educational experiences I’ve ever had. The show took me back to my school days, and I learned new facts and anecdotes and relearned a lot of old ones about India. I loved being the quizmaster for such a spectacular group of kids, and hope that the viewers of Epic Channel can see the energy and joy we felt while shooting this one-of-a-kind show.”
