A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
A fairly straightforward drama about scammers, Quiz doesn't offer many positive messages beyond "don't cheat."
Positive Role Models

Occasionally contains mild profanity: "hell," "wanky," "bloody," etc.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Quiz is a mini-series about a married couple taken to court for allegedly cheating on the original British version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. It stars British actors Matthew Macfayden (Succession) and Sian Clifford (Fleabag). The series retells the story of the show's conception and rise in popularity in parallel with the couple's story. Quiz contains very little objectionable content, but kids may not be interested without remembering Millionaire's initial cultural impact.
Is It Any Good?
Like many docudramas, AMC's retelling of the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire cheating scandal is mostly an efficient recap of events anyone familiar with the story (or even the trailer) already know about. However, Quiz succeeds largely on the strength of its cast, who infuse its weighty set-up with riveting, unsentimental character work. Some teens might be interested, but it's probably mostly adults who remember the absolute fervor around the show that will be most intrigued by this tale.
