Star World hunts for smartest kid

Entertainment major Star Network has planned to come up with a new weekly quiz show, India's Child Genius - the search for India's smartest kid, an industry source informed exchange4media.com today.

The show would be aired in the coming weeks on Star World. BBC Master Mind-famed quizmaster Siddhartha Basu would be hosting the show, the source said. The production is being handled by Synergy Communications.

According to him, 320 young children across the country would battle it out for the title of India's Child Genius. Children between the age group of 10 to 13 years would be eligible to participate in the contest. There would be an initial short listing, followed by preliminary tests, zonal rounds, semi-finals all culminating to the final round where the winner would be chosen, the source said.

“The show intends to provide a platform to the brightest pre-teen academic achievers in the country. The participants would be tested on the basis of their general knowledge, verbal and non-verbal reasoning, mathematics, science, history, natural world, geography, mythology, literature, English language and spellings,” explained the source.
