Candy Crush is becoming a game show

Candy Crush, the once ubiquitous mobile game behemoth that’s now played almost exclusively by my aunt, is getting its own game show. CBS announced on Tuesday that it is teaming up with King Games and Lionsgate to produce the hour-long series. Details on game mechanics are still sparse but the network did explain that 2-person teams will “use their wits and physical agility to compete on enormous, interactive game boards.” The series will be executive produced by Matt Kunitz, the guy behind Fear Factor and Wipeout, however there’s no word yet on who will host or when the series will premier.

This move follows the recent successes of retro-style game shows like Celebrity Family Feud as well as mobile game crossovers like the Angry Birds movie and the upcoming Fruit Ninja feature. This is what we get for complaining about how Hollywood was only interested in rebooting existing franchises.
