NGC to enter the quiz show space with Indian Quiz League

National Geographic Channel is all set to launch its new quiz show, ‘Indian Quiz League’ with Gaurav Kapoor.

Premiering on the channel this February, Indian Quiz League (IQL) will put the self-proclaimed smarties to the ultimate task of proving their intelligence against the average India. Based on the knowledge pillar of National Geographic, IQL will test contestants in relation to how the nation fares in answering them.

With IQL, Nat Geo will challenge individuals to showcase their intelligence not only against their contenders, but also the collective nation. The show will be telecast Monday to Friday at 8PM.

Speaking on the launch of the new show, Debarpita Banerjee, Vice President- Marketing at National Geographic and Fox International Channels said, “The novelty of Nat Geo’s IQL is that it will be a battle of wits between an individual contestant and an entire nation. We are very excited about IQL because this unique quiz show will challenge our overestimated perceptions of self-intelligence.”

Gaurav Kapoor’s quick wit and smooth charms is all set to add to the cool quotient of Nat Geo IQL. Excited about his association with National Geographic,  Kapoor said, “I am extremely thrilled and am looking forward to working with National Geographic Channel as it will be an ideal mix of knowledge and fun. In my new role as a quizmaster I will endeavor to ensure that participants are at ease and have as much fun playing the game as I will have hosting it.”

The group released the Little Hearts online-only campaign, #BreakSomeHearts, early this year and is on the path to make many more of its brands available on the digital platform
