The winner of NBC’s new game show could walk away with more than $2 million. (Sign us up!)

This is… not American IdolRyan Seacrest may be playing host once again, but things are a little different this time around. NBC’s The Million Second Quiz debuts Sept. 9 on NBC, ushering in the latest game show craze; and as its name suggests, the game will take place during the course of 12 days. There’s a catch, though: the game doesn’t stop just because the camera fades to black!

‘The Million Second Quiz': How Does It Work?

While the on-camera portion of the show will feature players feverishly answering trivia questions in the “Money Chair,” which is located under a massive hourglass structure in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City, fans of the show at home will be able to get a closer look at the action.

Through the Million Second Quiz app, as well as through NBC.com, fans can watch a 23-hour feed — excluding the one hour per day the quiz is televised — and play along. As new contestants are selected, they’ll literally be plucked from their homes for all the country to see.

As crazy as it may sound, the players who advance during The Million Second Quiz will basically live under that giant hourglass for the duration of their time on the show. They’ll begin in the “Money Chair,” then move onto “Winner’s Row,” where the four leading players will face each other for immunity.

It’s complicated, it’s intense, and if it works out, it’ll be a huge victory for NBC — oh, and for whoever gets to take home the largest prize in TV history.
