Konami's iconic arcade game from the 80's has been reimagined as a game show and we have all the details on how you can watch the new Peacock Original series FROGGER online.
Frogger has remained a worldwide phenomenon since it was first introduced by Konami all the way back in 1981 and in the time since, the game has become a franchise with a library of more than 30 titles across various platforms.
Just like in the arcade game where players need to help a frog navigate across a variety of obstacle-filled courses, the game show FROGGER will bring this popular franchise to life on an epic course. The first season of the show, which will feature 13 hour-long episodes, will see contestants try to make their way across twelve outrageous obstacle courses known as "crossings" in the world of Frogger.
Contestants from across the U.S. will need to dodge traffic, leap over snapping alligators and hop over hungry hippos to make their way to the end of the course. However, to do so, they'll need to be skilled, strong, use strategy and solve problems. Whoever can make it to the end of the course each episode will jmp away with $100,000.
Actor and comedian Damon Wayans Jr. will be the host of FROGGER but he'll be joined by TV host, broadcaster and media personality from Good Morning Football, Kyle Brandt who will serve as the show's co-host.
Whether you grew up playing Frogger in the arcade or even on a Commodore 64 or an Atari 2600, we'll show you how to watch Peacock's new game show FROGGER online from anywhere in the world.
