GLITCH: THE RISE & FALL OF HQ TRIVIA
Emmy® Award-winning director Salima Koroma (Dreamland: The Burning of Black Wall Street) documents the tech-fueled rise and Fyre-style fall of HQ Trivia, the revolutionary “game show on your phone” app that went viral, swept the nation, then crashed and burned. The global live-play game sensation drew millions of daily users to its frenetically fun trivia challenges and cash prizes, attracting celebrity fans including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Neil Patrick Harris, Jimmy Kimmel, and Kelly Clarkson. But its success was undone by corporate clashes, cast changes, and a tragic death. This is the story of a startup sh*tshow. Glitch: The Rise & Fall of HQ Trivia is produced by Left/Right.
