This spinoff “will feature 15 colleges and universities from across the country battling head-to-head for two weeks of intense competition,” for the grand prize of $100,000, according to ABC.

  • The show’s executive producer will be Michael Davies, who has produced “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” in the past. Sony Pictures Television will produce the show, which will premiere Feb. 8.

Here is a full list of dates, according to The Wrap:
