Student loan debt is out of control and comedian Michael Torpey (Orange is the New Black) has the foolish idea he can do something about it. Paid Off with Michael Torpey gives three lucky college grads – saddled with student debt – the chance to test the depth of their degrees in a fun, fast paced trivia gameshow. In the end, one lucky winner will get the chance to have their student debt wiped out.
Torpey’s brainchild, Paid Off, will feature three contestants who will compete in three rounds of trivia for a cash prize, or the chance to wipe out their debts in their entirety. But unlike other game shows, where some players walk away empty handed—Paid Off is no zero sum game. Over the course of 16 episodes, the show will give away a total of roughly half a million in cash, distributed among more than 60 people.
