CBS has ordered a one-hour, live-action game show series based on the mobile game franchise “Candy Crush” with Matt Kunitz producing for CBS, King Ltd. and Lionsgate.
In the game Candy Crush Saga, players match colorful candies in combinations of three or more to win points, defeat obstacles and progress through more than 2,000 levels. On average, 18 billion game rounds are played every month around the world.
In the series, the game comes to life as teams of two people use their wits and physical agility to compete on enormous, interactive game boards featuring next-generation technology to be crowned the champions. A host will be announced at a later date.
Peter Levin, Russell Binder, Nicki Sheard and Sebastian Knutsson will also serve as executive producers.
