NBC will be making an interactive game show using the app and televised contestants, with the potential to win “life-changing” amounts of money.

The Verge reports that the game show in question will go prime time:

NBC is partnering with QuizUp developer Plain Vanilla games to make QuizUp America, an interactive gameshow that will pit TV contestants against viewers at home who have qualified using the app, making both sides answer head-to-head questions to win “life-changing” amounts of money.

2015 has been a boom year for QuizUp. Earlier this year, QuizUp hit Chinese markets, and Plain Vanilla has raked in millions in venture capital.

Currently, QuizUp has about 15 million users worldwide. No air date for the QuizUp America game show has been disclosed.
