LOS ANGELES (June 16, 2022) – AXS TV hits the concert scene this summer to put music fans to the ultimate test in the all-new trivia series Parking Lot Payday—premiering Tuesday, July 12 at 8p.m. ET/5p.m. PT.
Hosted by Zach Selwyn—whose diverse credits include leading roles on acclaimed series such as Around the Horn (ESPN), Attack Of The Show, and America’s Secret Slang, among others—Parking Lot Payday puts a fun and unique spin on the traditional game show experience, as Selwyn and his crew ride into concert parking lots to give attendees the chance to cash-in on their knowledge of their favorite bands. The inaugural season features four 30-minute episodes, putting the spotlight on concertgoers on their way to see heavy metal masterminds Metallica (July 12), rock trailblazers The Rolling Stones (July 19), chart-topping favorites Imagine Dragons (July 26), and rock mainstays Coldplay (Aug. 1).
Select fans will have the opportunity to answer up to 10 multiple-choice questions specifically pertaining to the band performing that night. The first question is worth five dollars, and that amount doubles with each question that follows—resulting in a possible grand total of $2,560 for those lucky contestants who manage to correctly answer all 10 questions. To aid them in their quest, fans will have the option to ask for a hint, text a friend, or search for the answer on their phone for 30 seconds if they get stuck. A contestant can choose to walk away at any point with the money they have won, whether it is merely $5, $80 or the entire pot. Once a fan answers a question incorrectly, they are out of the game and lose all of their earned money.
“Parking Lot Payday is the ultimate concert pre-game, showcasing the incredibly knowledgeable fans that have become as much a part of these legendary band's history as the chart-topping hits they’ve created,” Zach Selwyn said. “This is a really fun and interactive series that fans of all ages can enjoy. We had a great time putting it together, and we look forward to sharing it with AXS TV’s audience when Parking Lot Payday debuts on July 12.”
“Parking Lot Payday is a true celebration of the fans—their passion for their favorite bands, their impressive knowledge, and their unique personalities that in many ways are a reflection of these artists they love,” said Sarah Weidman, Head of Programming, Development and Multi-Platform Content for AXS TV. “We're giving the fans the spotlight this summer with this new series. Concert-goers are having the chance to win some cash, and viewers get to play along at home to test their knowledge. Zach had a blast with them and it's a really fun and light-hearted show; we are confident our viewers are going to enjoy everything we have planned.”
Parking Lot Payday is produced in-house by AXS TV, with Sarah Weidman, Lauren Child and Kim Garner serving as executive producers.
