"The Million Second Quiz," the new competition hosted by Emmy-winning producer and host Ryan Seacrest and airing live on NBC from a gigantic hourglass-shaped structure in the heart of Manhattan, is beginning its nationwide search for contestants willing to test the limits of their knowledge, endurance and will to win on the biggest game show ever imagined.

"The Million Second Quiz" premieres Monday, Sept. 9, at 8 p.m.

The search begins in Washington D.C. (Aug. 10), Boston (Aug. 14), Philadelphia (Aug. 18) and New York City (Aug. 24). Potential contestants must be age 18 or over and legal U.S. residents to enter.

The entire competition takes place 24 hours a day for more than 12 days. Contestants will be pushed to the limits of their knowledge and the breaking point of endurance as they compete in quiz bouts around the clock.
