How Netflix Picked Up Ex-NFL Player Trevor Pryce’s ‘Kulipari’ Animated Show About Superhero Frogs

Netflix last year bought the rights to “Kulipari: An Army of Frogs,” based on [Trevor Pryce’s] book triology published by Abrams, about superhero frogs fighting hordes of scorpions and spiders in the Australian outback. The show’s 13 22-minute episodes are set to debut worldwide on Netflix Sept. 2, […] The origins of the “Kulipari” story date back to when Pryce was growing up in Florida. “In Florida, whenever it rains the frogs come out, on my street there were all these smushed frogs. It freaked me out,” he said. He melded the idea of superhero frogs with elements of Aboriginal Australian folklore, along with the fable of “The Scorpion and the Frog” in writing the Kulipari stories. – Todd Spangler, Variety
