'He Is Perfect': Ryan Seacrest To Host New Gameshow 'The Million Second Quiz'

Seacrest now features prominently on three major US networks

Ryan Seacrest has been unveiled as the host of a major new gameshow called The Million Second Quiz; a gig that expands his involvement to no less than three major US networks.

The star will host and serve as executive producer on the show, saying in a statement that he "looks forward to [making] the show a success".

The quiz will see trivia experts pitted against one-another during nightly telecasts and online over a small 11-day window.

Seacrest said: "It's really a fun and different format that I believe will generate lots of fans across different platforms.

"I'm looking forward to working with the other producers and everyone at NBC to make the show a success."

Paul Telegdy, NBC president of alternative and late night programming, praised Seacrest for being at "the epicentre" of big televisual events.

"When people see Ryan Seacrest, whether at the Emmys, the Oscars or New Year's Eve, he is at the epicentre of national events," he gushed.

"He is a broadcaster, in all the traditional sense, but also in the most contemporary - he is an accomplished host of live TV and a master of social media and pop culture. This makes him perfect for The Million Second Quiz."

The show debuts on September 19.
