Pop Culture Jeopardy! is a brand-new twist on the classic quiz show’s “answer-and-question” format that combines the academic rigor of Jeopardy! with the excitement and unpredictability of pop culture.

Contestants, playing in teams of three, will need to be experts in categories ranging from Alternative Rock to The Avengers, Broadway to MMA, Gen Z to Zendaya, as they compete in a tournament-style event for the grand prize and ultimate bragging rights.

“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.”

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to collaborate with our partners at Amazon to make Prime Video the home for our new Jeopardy! spinoff series,” said Suzanne Prete, President of Game Shows at Sony Pictures Television.

“With Michael Davies at the helm, Pop Culture Jeopardy! is going to be a nail-biter for game show enthusiasts who can expect to see teams competing at the highest level of Jeopardy! combined with a fresh twist of pop culture Olympics for the mind…it’s going to be a must-watch for long-time viewers and new fans alike.”

Pop Culture Jeopardy! is produced by Sony Pictures Television for Prime Video. Seven-time Emmy Award winner Michael Davies serves as executive producer. A host will be announced later.

Information regarding the contestant application process will be available soon for those who wish to compete on the show.
