Candy Crush is getting a game show on CBS


‘Candy Crush Saga’ is played reportedly more than 8 billion times a month on mobile devices worldwide, so it seems like a natural progression to see the sweet tooth match ’em game would get a TV version. TV Line is reporting today that CBS along with Lions Gate Television will produce a one-hour live action game show of the popular mobile game with teams trying to match “wits and physical agility to compete on enormous, interactive game boards featuring next generation technology.”
