CBS has ordered a new game show based on the popular mobile game ‘Candy Crush Saga’.
The hour-long show will pit teams of two people who will need to "use their wits and physical agility to compete on enormous, interactive game boards featuring next generation technology to conquer Candy Crush and be crowned the champions".
According to CBS’s announcement, Lionsgate and King will work with the network on the new format for the game show, which will be created and exec produced by Matt Kunitz (“Wipeout,” “Fear Factor.”)
“We are huge fans of Candy Crush and, like so many others, we know the ‘rush’ of advancing to the next level of the game,” said Glenn Geller, President, CBS Entertainment, said in a statement. “We’re excited to work with Lionsgate and King to adapt one of the world’s most popular and entertaining game franchises for television and make it available to its massive, passionate fan base who can watch and play along at home.”
