Draw Something Signs US TV Deal to Create Interactive "Celebrity" Quiz

By Gary Cutlack on at

The puzzlingly popular smartphone Pictionary clone is heading to TV screens, with US network CBS doing a deal to produce a pilot based around the flash-in-the-pan drawing quiz.

The alarming description of the show claims "celebrities" will be involved in the TV production of Zynga's big money puzzle game, along with an interactive element that'll allow users at home to join in and compete with the celebs to try to win prizes with their illustrations.

Any of you who were unemployed or confined to bed with a serious illness during the early 1990s will remember the excellent ITV daytime quiz Win, Lose or Draw, fronted by the always hilarious Danny Baker, which was a similar sort of thing, only no one had a telephone in their pocket back then. So it might not be a total disaster. [Independent]
