After launching some of the highest rated format shows on Indian television, Colors along with Cadbury today announced the launch of India۪s most popular quiz show ‘The Bournvita Quiz Contest’.
The show will be returning to television after a gap of four years and will be seen on Colors every Sunday at 10:30 starting Sunday 14th August.
The show is expected to bring back a sense of nostalgia to a lot of people who have been familiar with the show while at the same time introducing today’s generation to the joys of quizzing with quizmaster Derek O’Brien.
Speaking about the show Derek O۪ Brien the host of Bournvita Quiz Contest said, “I am extremely delighted knowing that this show is making a comeback. I am looking forward to working with the COLORS team and I’m sure we’ll be able to recreate the magic that made this show such a success over the years. The format of the show has been redesigned to showcase some interesting and exciting twists and to reach to a wider audience.” He further added that there was a huge online movement on Facebook and other social media to bring back the programme.”
Raj Nayak, CEO of Colors said, “Colors is always on the lookout for interesting show ideas. So when the idea of bringing back Bournvita Quiz Contest first came to us, we thought what could be better than resurrecting a well loved quiz show that we all have fond memories of. If you were a kid growing up in India in the 90s, you probably watched Bournvita Quiz Contest on TV pretty religiously. While the concept of the show will remain the same, the format is being tweaked slightly to reflect changing times. The show will once again be telecast on Sundays like it used to be earlier. I believe that this show will help us in connecting with our audiences while at the same time allow the channel to bring in some distinctively interesting content in our show offerings.”
