Trivia starts tonight!

As I type these words (and then retype them due to spelling mistaeks), the first episode of Trivia is just a couple of hours away. I thought I’d have something interesting to say at this point but it turns out I don’t. It’s been such a long road – I wrote the first draft of episode one in January 2006 – that all I feel is pure delight that it’s finally on TV. If you watch, I really hope you like it.

Irish Times piece on quizzes

In honour of Trivia‘s broadcast this week, I have a piece in today’s Irish Times retracing my sad history with quizzes. The web version is here. I honestly have no idea where that photo of me came from and can only apologise for it.

Tablequiz.net

There’s a lovely Irish blog devoted to table quizzes – quite sensibly, it’s called tablequiz.net. I had a quick chat with its owner, John Nolan, about Trivia and quizzes in general. You can read the resultĀ here.

Trivia has a broadcast date!

Please excuse the exclamation mark in the heading but I’m very excited. The first episode of Trivia will be broadcast on RTE One at 10.15 PM on 3 February. It will run for six weeks, unless literally nobody watches the first episode, in which case it will run for one week or less (in my worst nightmares, I see a plug being pulled during the commercial break).

If you can, I hope you’ll watch. We’re all very proud of it. The producers, Grand Pictures, have set up a facebook page for the show and will post pics, video clips and what-not there over the coming weeks.
