CBS has ordered a TV game show on Draw Something, after being introduced to the unscripted pilot based on the OMGpop and Zynga’s game. The project was executive produced by Ryan Seacrest and Michael Davies, and each week teams of celebrities and actual players of the game will play it before a studio audience for prize money. Viewers can also play “along at home for a chance to win prizes and compete with the celebrities.” No word on when the first episode will air, according to Deadline.
