Sportscaster Dan Patrick will make his game show host debut Sept. 24 with the premiere of Sports Jeopardy! on Crackle.
The Sony-owned digital network has ordered 52 episodes of the half-hour sports-centric show — a spinoff of the Sony-producedJeopardy! — and new episodes will become available every Wednesday throughout the year.
Patrick, host of The Dan Patrick Show, said that Sports Jeopardy! has a “great starting lineup” and added that the show is “the only game show that rewards you for the hours you spend on your couch watching sports and being anti-social, so reward yourself, tune in, and play along.”
Sports Jeopardy! will include interactive components, including a 99-cent mobile app that will allow viewers to follow along with the show. Crackle says more than 30,000 people registered online to audition for the show over the summer.
