This is the first “Jeopardy!” spin-off series to be created for a major streaming service.

“What is Prime Video‘s upcoming game show ‘Pop Culture Jeopardy!‘?”

That is correct! And notice we said “major streaming service,” since “Sports Jeopardy!” ran on Crackle (back when that ad-supported on-demand platform was owned by Sony) from 2014 to 2016.

But hey, you get the points— and so does Prime Video, which was set to announce “Pop Culture Jeopardy!” on Tuesday during Amazon’s inaugural upfront presentation in New York. The series, which comes from Sony Pictures Television (and its game show division), reps the latest extension of the “Jeopardy!” franchise.

Set up like the “Jeopardy!” gameplay, the show’s “answer-and-question” format will focus on music, film, TV, stage, sports and more. Episodes will premiere on Prime Video across the globe.

“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.”

There’s no host yet for “Pop Culture Jeopardy!,” but the show will also be executive produced by -

“Jeopardy!” EP Michael Davies. Info on the contestant application process will also be available soon.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to collaborate with our partners at Amazon to make Prime Video thehome 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.”

Besides “Sports Jeopardy!,” past “Jeopardy!” offshoots include “Rock & Roll Jeopardy!,” which ran on VH1 from 1998 to 2001; and “Jep!,” a children’s version that appeared on Game Show Network from 1998 to 2000. The original daytime “Jeopardy!” launched in 1964, and the modern syndicated version premiered in 1984. In recent years, the series has also spawn several primetime iterations: “Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time,” “Jeopardy! National College Championship,” “Celebrity Jeopardy!” and “Jeopardy! Masters.”
