E! orders Pop Quiz

The half-hour pop culture game show is based on Le Circle (pictured), which is broadcast on TVA in Quebec.

Bell Media entertainment specialty channel E! has ordered 60 episodes of new Canadian game show Pop Quiz.

Each episode of Pop Quiz features 10 contestants in a circle answering rapid-fire pop culture questions. Each round becomes increasingly difficult and wrong answers lead to elimination. The remaining two contestants then face off in the final round for a cash prize.

The half-hour pop culture-based series is based on the Le Cercle game show that is broadcast on TVA in Quebec.

The series is currently casting for a host, judge and contestants.

Pop Quiz will begin production this summer in Toronto, and is slated to premiere on E! in the fall.
