CBS orders TV show pilot of 'Draw Something' online game
UPI News Service, 06/16/2012
The CBS network has ordered a pilot episode of a television game show based on the "Draw Something" game played on mobile phones and tablets.
The show is a joint venture by Sony Pictures Television, Ryan Seacrest Productions and Embassy Row, The Hollywood Reporter said. It will feature both celebrity and person-in-the-street contestants and a live audience.
No host has been selected, and it is not expected to be Seacrest.
"Draw Something" bears a considerable resemblance to "Win, Lose or Draw," a CBS game show broadcast two decades ago.
The game has been extremely popular among mobile users with 35 million downloads in the six weeks after it was introduced.
