UK Pay-TV broadcaster Sky One and Warner/Shed owned Twenty-Twenty Television are piloting an interactive quiz fronted by Radio 1 DJ Sara Cox which uses Monterosa's LViS Studio platform to power the second screen play-along game.
Players at home will be able to play along live with the show in an LViS-powered HTML5 app available on web and mobile, before answering eight rounds of yes/no questions, based around morals. As an LViS Producer Partner, Twenty Twenty have the platform's speed and versatility to create a fully working game for the pilot.
Twenty Twenty Television will film Take on the Nation at Sky Studios in Brentford next week.
While they answer the questions within 60 seconds, Cox will speak with a selection of viewers via Skype to provide an insight into what the nation is thinking.
The questions are designed to take a “snapshot of the nation”, with three contestants in the studio guessing what percentage of viewers answered “yes” to the questions posed.
The contestant with the closest prediction will bank a sum of money and whoever collects the biggest pot at the end of the eight rounds will go through to the final, where they will battle the viewers at home to keep their prize.
Simon Brickle, Monterosa Managing Director said "The beauty of using LViS is that you can create a usable, good-looking HTML5 app quickly, which plugs into TV graphics and studio technology, and can live on any device or platform. It's brought time and costs down dramatically, enabling producers like Twenty Twenty to test interactive formats while in development".
