Former Clemson and NFL star Trevor Pryce has retired from the NFL but has recently written a set of very popular children's books - An Army of Frogs, The Rainbow Serpent and Song of Uluru.
Netflix ordered a 13-episode season of the Kulipari universe, and it will air for the first time worldwide on September 2nd.
I spent a lot of money on it," Pryce said to variety.com. "It didn’t cost as much as ‘House of Cards,’ but we spent more per episode than Marvel has spent on some of their TV shows. My thing was, the quality had to be so superior — because I don’t have a track record (in TV)."
According to a press release, Kulipari: Army of Frogs follows the adventures of a group of peaceful amphibians who live in quietude and safety thanks to an elite group of super powered frogs called the Kulipari. Suddenly this tranquil environment is turned upside down when a villainous army of spiders and scorpions threatens the frogs. Enter our hero, Darel, a young frog who one day dreams of joining the Kulipari despite his lack of experience and limited fighting skills. With the help of a motley crew of friends, Darel will suddenly have the chance to become the warrior of his dreams.
"When I first created the Kulipari universe, I knew I couldn't be alone in thinking that poisonous frogs taking on scorpions in the outback sounded kinda cool. It turns out I was right. I wasn't alone, because Nic, Mike and the team at Splash have embraced the ideology, tone, story and high standards that have been set by all that have worked in the Kulipari sandbox so far," commented Pryce.
"The artists, the writers, the game developers, and publishers have given their all to the idea and the IP, and I'm very excited about and trust where Splash wants to take it next in the continuation of the ever expanding and evolving Kulipari landscape," added Pryce.
Pryce is also developing a season two through five of the Kulipari universe, a line of t-shirts with Under Armour, and a comic book that is being released this week.
