The contestants will be determined through an online audition process. The prize money is over Rs 10 lakhs.
Talking about You V YouTube, Aradhana Bhola, Managing Director, Fremantle, India, said:
“Fremantle is home to some of the most successful and longstanding game shows worldwide. We are delighted to marry our irresistible entertainment game show expertise with the learning platform available on YouTube to bring this content to audiences. You V YouTube is a unique quiz show that not only brings together some of India’s best creators but also gives contestants a chance to both learn and earn, in a fun-filled environment.
“The series has been filmed entirely virtually, with cast and contestants participating from the safety of their own homes during the pandemic; a feat that makes us proud. What’s even more gratifying is that whatever sum of money a contestant has won on the show has been matched in donation along with the proceeds of the live play along (available to viewers during the premiere episode) to charities working for covid relief.”
You V YouTube premieres on October 9, with new episodes every Saturday and Sunday at 7 pm IST.
