'High School Quiz Show' debuts tonight on WGBH

Boston's WGBH will debut High School Quiz Show tonight at 7:30 pm.

The program is an academic quiz show featuring local high school students. The first season of the program, High School Quiz Show, will feature teams from 24 Massachusetts schools who compete against each other in a "fast-paced question and answer format, both as teams and in head-to-head lightning rounds," according to WBGH. Tonight's teams will be Lincoln-Sudbury Regional H.S. (Sudbury) vs. University Park Campus School (Worcester). A Twitter party is being held tonight on WGBH2 in tandem with the show.

According to information on the program's Facebook page, questions are drawn from the core Massachusetts high school curriculum, including literature, history and science, together with current events, sports, entertainment, and general knowledge. The competition will culminate in a statewide playoff for the championship and four teams from WGBY's academic game program, As Schools Match Wits, will eventually come to WGBH studios to compete with High School Quiz Show's four top qualifying teams, according to a release from WGBH officials. WGBY is the PBS affiliate in Springfield, Massachusetts.

The show began production in November. Student teams from around Massachusetts have been taping their shows over the last few months. Production support for the program is provided by the University of Massachusetts.

Participating schools are: Amesbury High, Boston Collegiate Charter, Brighton High, Bromfield, Dighton-Rehobeth Regional High, Everett High, Framingham High, Hingham High, Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High, Lynn English High, Methuen High, Minuteman Career and Technical High, Nipmuc Regional High, Oakmont Regional High, Randolph High, Revere High, Quincy High, Shepherd Hill Regional High, Sturgis Charter Public, and University Park Campus.
