Candy Crush Live-Action Game-show in the Works

CBS orders new Candy-based game-show.

A live-action competitive Candy Crush game-show is being made. Announced early October 19, the one-hour series based on the popular mobile game will be a collaboration between CBS, Lionsgate Television, and King.

Specifics have not been released as to what kinds of challenges the contestants will face, what prizes the winners will receive, or how the companies exactly plan on translating a mobile game to real-life. What we do know is this:

  • The show will consist of teams of two working together on an interactive board to win the game.
  • It will feature "next generation technology," but did not mention what this technology will be like.
  • It seems to be a mix of puzzle-solving and actual physical challenges.

It's worth noting that the series will be executively produced by Matt Kunitz, the man responsible for other game-shows such as Fear Factor and Wipeout. While it's hard to say how well the game will transfer to a new medium, with Kunitz on the team, there's likely to be a variety of interesting challenges in store for participants.
