In February 2011, Discovery Bay Games secured worldwide digital tablet rights for "Saturday Night Live" through an ongoing relationship with Broadway Video Enterprises. The deal allowed for the creation of this first "Saturday Night Live" App and provides opportunities for creating additional multi-activity games for iPad using the Duo Pop accessory. 

The "Saturday Night Live" App, together with Duo Pop™, delivers a unique gameplay experience for the whole family on iPad. Features include:

  • 172 questions featuring videos and images from the 1990s
  • Duo Pop™ Party Mode offering a true game show experience for 2 to 4 players or teams
  • Solo Trivia Challenge, enabling a single player to compete against the timer (Duo Pop not required)
  • Content for ages 12 and up

"We are excited about the opportunities this partnership has presented for us on a global scale," said Craig Olson, CEO of Discovery Bay Games. "This new game utilizes the full power of iPad to deliver a compelling and rich gameplay experience featuring content from 'Saturday Night Live.'"

"By expanding our partnership to include digital rights, we're able to incorporate clips from popular SNL sketches into gameplay," said Britta von Schoeler, executive vice president and general manager of Broadway Video Enterprises. "This game is ideal for the whole family and we're excited to continue bringing fresh content to iPad users." 

"Saturday Night Live," which debuted in October 1975, is the most Emmy-nominated show in television history with 142 nominations, has been honored twice with the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award, and is regarded as a truly national institution. The show has launched the careers of many of the brightest comedic talents of their respective generations.

The 'Saturday Night Live - The Game' App is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
