Remember Frogger, the highly addictive video arcade game from the '80s? It's coming to TV. NBCUniversal's streaming service Peacock is turning the classic game into a game show.
Frogger will be a reality competition series featuring contestants as they work their way through a supersized obstacle course featuring insane physical challenges and all the nostalgia you could ever hope for.
"A fierce and ridiculously fun competition, Frogger will feature twelve outrageous obstacle courses or 'crossings,' Peacock said in an announcement. "These physically demanding challenges will see contestants dodge treacherous traffic, leap over snapping gators and hop over hungry hippos to conquer the course. Contestants from across the country will test their talent in a competition requiring skill, strength, strategy and problem-solving smarts. Who will have what it takes to be America's finest Frogger and jump away with a massive cash prize?"
No word on whether or not the gators and hippos will be real-life animals, but considering watching a human being eaten by an alligator probably won't make for wholesome TV, plus the whole PETA thing, chances are they'll be made foam and rubber. Hopefully.
The series will run for 13 episodes, each an hour long. You can apply to be a contestant at www.froggercasting.com for the chance to earn yourself a "big cash prize."
