Peacock is taking a leap into competition series with a show based on the classic video game Frogger.
The NBCUniversal streaming service has ordered 13 episodes of Frogger, in which contestants will play the role of the frog from the Konami video game and attempt to cross a series of obstacles that includes traffic, snapping alligators and hungry hippos.
The courses, or “crossings” in the parlance of the show, will test players’ strength, strategy and problem-solving abilities. The winner will walk away with a cash prize.
Frogger will be the first original competition series at Peacock, whose unscripted efforts thus far have focused on docuseries, including a recently announced revival of The Real Housewives of Miami and the Andy Cohen-produced Ex Rated.
The series is produced by Eureka Productions (ABC’s Holey Moley, Fox’s Name That Tune) in partnership with Konami Cross Media NY. Eureka’s Chris Culvenor created the format and will executive produce with Paul Franklin.
