Candy Crush is heading to live action TV because reasons

CBS is turning Candy Crush, the popular mobile game involving swiping candy, into a live action game show, the network has announced. It isn’t known who will be hosting this game show, nor the exact nature of the game itself and what the contestants can win. Maybe they’ll be awarded with a cache of real-life candy? No one can say.
