Peacock is leaping into wild territory with a series order of Frogger, a larger-than-life physical competition series based on the iconic 1980’s video game.

A worldwide phenomenon since its introduction by Konami in 1981, Frogger has remained one of the most classic and beloved video game franchises of all time with a library spanning more than 30 titles across various platforms. The show Frogger brings to life this popular franchise and supersizes it on an epic course! 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.

Oh, so it’s like Wipeout! or MXC: Most Extreme Elimination Challenge, but with a Frogger theme? That sounds like a hopping good time to me. Haha. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Actually, you know what? I’m not sorry. Puns are the bedrock of a civilized society dammit.

According to Peacock, Frogger will feature twelve outrageous obstacle courses or “crossings.” 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?

Peacock has ordered 13 hour-long episodes of Frogger thus far, and they want you to be a part of the action! I’m serious. You can apply to be a contestant of Frogger by visiting

Is anyone else surprised that no one has thought to do this until now? Frogger is the perfect setup for a physical challenge-style gameshow, and I’m excited to see how elements of the classic arcade game are implemented for this outrageous project.
