Tonight is the premiere of The Quest, and there is a lot of live Tweeting

Tonight is the premiere of ABC’s new series ‘The Quest,’ and if you haven’t heard about it yet, you may want to read-up on the premise of the unusual series. The network has called it a “genre-bending new reality series,” but “The Quest” is even stranger than you may predict.
 
The show features 12 people, pulled from their everyday lives, who are transported to a fantasy world where they are declared Paladins, defenders of a noble cause. These Paladins must compete to save the besieged kingdom of Everealm but only one will prevail and earn the right to be called the One True Hero.
 
“It got to me because I thought, who amongst us doesn’t want to be a hero…I loved it,” said Whoopi Goldberg today on “The View. You can join the 12 would be heroes as they live tweet during the East Coast Broadcast of tonight’s premiere episode airing 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET/PT. @TheQuestABC, #TheQuest
