Hollywood may be on hiatus for coronavirus, but the producers at Jeopardy! put out a casting call for Santa Barbarans for when production resumes. The game show famously pits contestants in a fast-paced quiz that requires a question, not an answer, from a returning champion and two challengers.

The original show debuted in 1964 — the brainchild of TV host and producer Merv Griffin — winning fans and Emmys for a watchability that Stephen Colbert coined as its “poindexterity” (for all-time winner Ken Jennings in 2006). Among the categories that pop up is one called “The Dreaded Spelling Category,” as well as “Jackal” and “Hyde.”
