Your favorite addicting app is now coming to you right from your television screen. That’s right! Candy Crush is becoming a live-action game show on CBS!
“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 of CBS Entertainment. “We’re excited to work with Lionsgate and King (the makers of the mobile app) 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.”
The show will be produced by Matt Kunitz, who has worked on other shows like ABC’s hilarious Wipeout and NBC’s Fear Factor.
“The Candy Crush franchise lends itself perfectly to the kind of larger-than-life, physical game shows that I love to produce and CBS is the perfect home for it,” Kunitz said. “As a Candy Crush Saga player myself, I am excited to amp up the action and visuals in our huge Candy Crush Arena.”
Even though there have been no release dates for the game show yet, we are SO excited to see our guilty pleasure come to life! You know we’ll be tuning in.
