wondering just what CBS will do with its Candy Crush game show, due this summer. In other words, how will they translate the app into a TV show?
At first the site thinks the network will stick pretty close to the app's gameplay. "Sounds like we're basically gonna be watching people play Candy Crush on massive iPads to be totally honest, but we're staying open to the idea that it could actually be genius." Frankly, the massive iPads idea doesn't sound too genius-y to me, or to whoever wrote the blurb on the site. So they entertain other notions, like a combo with another well-known project.
"The show is being created by one of the producers behind the hilarious obstacle course show Wipeout, so maybe it's gonna be a hybrid of that and some Candy Crush-based app fun?" This sounds like a definite possibility, with contestants careening around those "enormous, interactive game boards" promised by CBS. Except it's hard to imagine how they might work the big balls into Candy Crush.
We'll see soon enough. The debut is set for July 9. Get those enormous game boards ready.
