Chuck's Zachary Levi is set to host a new Syfy game show called Geeks Who Drink, the network announced Wednesday.

The actor will also executive-produce the weekly series, in which teams of self-proclaimed "trivia geeks" will compete in rapid-fire quizzes that cover topics from pop culture to science-fiction. Each team will consist of three players, two trivia pros and a celebrity team captain; winners will earn bragging rights, prizes and a spot on the Geeks Who Drink leaderboard.

The game show is based on the pub trivia contest of the same name, which currently boasts more than 25,000 people participating in over 600 bars across 35 states.

"Not only is Zachary a spectacular talent both in front of and behind the camera, he lives and breathes geekdom and is a true pioneer in bringing the nerd community together," Heather Olander, senior vice president of alternative programming and development at Syfy, said in a statement. "As executive producer and host of this series, Zachary has the unparalleled ability to introduce the beloved bar game to the masses, inviting viewers at home to experience the infectious joy of the game for themselves."

Levi will next be seen on NBC's Heroes Reborn and as Abraham Lincoln on Hulu's Deadbeat.

Geeks Who Drink will premiere Thursday, July 16 on Syfy.
