Draw Something, the game that saved small studio OMGPOP and prompted a huge buyout from Zynga, is coming to CBS. Draw Something is the game in which you draw something and a friend guesses what it is. According to Variety, celebrities and everyday users will test their skills on live TV while audiences at home can join in to win prizes — including a chance to compete with the celebrities. A group including Sony and Ryan Seacrest is producing the show, but no date has yet been set for the first airing.
Odd news in the conflagration-of-media category. First a Twitter Tv show (Shit Your Dad Says), and now a mobile game-inspired TV game show?
This signals bizarre things ahead.
