ITV Studios has taken rights to the TV format based on the Quiz Clash mobile app.
Quiz Clash was created by FEO Media and claims to be the most popular mobile trivia game in the world with 37 million users across 14 territories. ITV Studios Germany has adapted it for TV with Quizduell launching on ARD channel Das Erste.
Viewers could play along with the show via a Quizduell app and it delivered solid ratings for Das Erste, averaging 1.3 million viewers.
ITV Studios Global Entertainment will now launch the format internationally.
Mike Beale, director of international formats, ITV Studios, said: “Quiz Duel is a tense, exciting quiz show with huge international potential and interest from broadcasters across the world is already high.”
FEO’s CEO Robert Willstedt said: “We are thrilled that the TV show has worked so well in Germany and look forward to working closely with ITVSGE to bring Quiz Duel to millions more viewers across the world.”
