Frogger TV Show Will Leapfrog To Peacock On September 9

Contestants will jump and avoid oncoming traffic for a chance to win $100,000.


Peacock has released the first official trailer for Frogger, the game show that is--as you can likely guess--a live-action real-life version of the popular arcade and video game. The show also finally has a release date revealed by the clip: September 9, with new episodes airing every Thursday.

The Frogger TV show was filmed in Australia--presumably as it's safer to produce there compared to other countries due to the pandemic--and has 13 hour-long episodes total coming this fall. Actor and comedian Damon Wayans Jr. (New Girl, Happy Endings) will host the Frogger TV show for Peacock with contestants competing to be named "America's finest Frogger." (Even though, again, it was filmed in Australia.) His co-host is Kyle Brandt of Good Morning Football. Check out the clip below, froggy-style.

The show's official synopsis reads in part: "Audiences and contestants alike will be transported into a wild, whimsical Frogger world, filled with all the simple but challenging elements of the mega-hit from Konami. Contestants from across the country will test their talent in a competition requiring skill, strength, strategy, and problem-solving smarts." The winner gets a cash prize of $100,000.

The competition series was first announced back in February.
