Those candy crushing techniques you’ve developed over the last few years are about to come in handy. CBS just ordered a live-action game show based on the hit mobile game, Candy Crush. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show will be a bit like Wipeout and Fear Factor, minus the actual wiping out or eating animal genitalia.

Intrigued? Here’s how it’s supposed to work: Teams of two will test their brains and agility while trying to conquer a massive interactive gaming board. If they’re able to defeat the Candy Crush, they’ll be crowned champions.

We don’t have an air date as of yet, but room will have to be made among the network’s other game shows like The Price is Right and Let’s Make a Deal. They’re also still looking for a host, so now would be a great time to send in those headshots.

Thoughts? Will you be tuning in?
