Pop-Cultured Jeopardy! Spinoff Announced for Amazon Prime

This marks the second streaming-only Jeopardy! version, after Crackle's Sports Jeopardy!.

Variety is reporting that Michael Davies’ Jeopardy! empire is growing with something that suspiciously sounds like one of his prior works.

Pop Culture Jeopardy! will see teams of 3 compete in pop culture trivia competitions. Ya know, like the World Series of Pop Culture, which was also EP’d by Davies for VH1.

“Pop Culture Jeopardy is its own cultural moment, marking the first time the iconic franchise will premiere exclusively on a streaming service,” said Lauren Anderson, head of AVOD originals unscripted and targeted programming, Amazon MGM Studios. “With a team-based approach and pop-culture focus, our global Prime Video customers will exclusively experience this innovative spin on Jeopardy! while testing their knowledge on topics that both define and transcend generations.”

No hosting or contestant information yet, although we’re hearing rumblings that past Jeopardy! contestants will be able to compete?? If so, get fucked everyone, Daddy needs his Second Chance.
