Zachary Levi to Produce and Host Syfy's Geeks Who Drink Game Show

Zachary Levi Syfy

Former Chuck star Zachary Levi is once again embracing his inner nerd.

Syfy on Wednesday announced that Levi will executive-produce and host a new game show for the network called Geeks Who Drink, based on the nationwide pub trivia phenomenon.

The rules are simple: Each week, two teams of three “trivia geeks” will answer questions from a variety of categories ranging from science fiction to pop culture; as an added bonus, each team will be helmed by a celebrity captain.

“To be the executive producer and host of Geeks Who Drink is an exciting opportunity to broaden my experience on both sides of the camera,” future Heroes Reborn star Levi says. “Geeks Who Drink is such a fresh take on the game show genre, and something that we at [Levi’s production company] The Nerd Machine believe will resonate with everyone who loves trivia and pop culture.”

Geeks Who Drink premieres Thursday, July 16 on Syfy.

    We need to bring back Chuck!! It was an amazing show the whole family could watch together. I was heartbroken when it got canceled so many crappy shows out there and they take off something that was truly amazing.

      I agree 100%. With all the reboots going on, NBC needs to redeem itself after that crappy series finale. I want my happy ever after with Chuck and Sarah living in the house they were going to buy!

    Happy Zachary will be on TV more this year.
