‘Jeopardy!’ goes ‘all star’ and colorful for 35th anniversary team tournament
Quiz show “Jeopardy!” is celebrating its 35th anniversary with a team-based tournament — the first of its kind — and as a result has made some graphical updates to brand the episodes and accommodate unique elements of gameplay.
The show, as is typical, unveiled new graphics back in September, which was also designed to include the “All Star” look. The show’s normal open was also modified for the teen tournament in November.
In some ways, the diamond-shaped “platforms” featured in the regular season graphics package suggest the points of a star — which moves up to being a primary background element during the “All Star” games — with an added blurred square textural element.
The shows, which are also being broken up to spread the normal three rounds of the game across multiple days, used a special open on the first day of the tournament, Feb. 20, 2019.
In addition to the unique look, the show added a new variation of its iconic theme music, which, if you’re looking to hear it uninterrupted, runs for a good 10 minutes at the beginning of the Facebook Live event the show held to draft its teams for these games in 2018.
