Game-show veterans launch PopJax
Merging social networking, user-generated video and gaming, PopJax aims to lure online game players to its online trivia contests.
Executives behind PopKax have more than 25 years of game show experience.
Doug Barry, PopJax CEO, has been involved with producing shows such as “The Jokers Wild” and “Win, Lose or Draw” and is the son of game show pioneer Jack Barry. Larry Taymor, COO, worked for more than 20 years in interactive television production, creating interactive versions of hit shows such as “Wheel of Fortune,” “Family Feud,” “The Dating Game” and “Jeopardy.”
The head writer for PopJax is Arnie Meisner, who has written for “The Family Feud,” and the “Hollywood Squares.”
“As lifelong game show professionals and video enthusiasts, we thought there was a void in the current casual online games offerings, and we felt that the most popular aspects of the Internet — online video and social networking — were being ignored,” said Barry in a release. “With PopJax, we’ve created a highly engaging video trivia game experience that also combines a prize system similar to game shows. Furthermore, the game experience will continuously expand, as more and more content is brought online and more users begin submitting questions. Now purveyors of pop culture trivia can finally be rewarded with cash for their databank of useless knowledge!”
