Pac-Man Reality Series In The Works
There are days that have me struggling over what to post. Which story will capture attention? What's newsworthy, and what's happening that is fun? When I stumbled upon this, it probably fits into the "none of the above" category, but I've decided to go ahead and share it anyway.
Pac-Man maybe headed to television as a reality/gameshow! How will this work? I'll let Deadline.com fill you in on some of the possibilities for the show:
The Pac-Man reality series is envisioned as a "big, crazy Wipeout-type event with a lot of energy," said Merv Griffin's president of TV Roy Bank. "The idea we have is to take what Pac-Man is and bring it to life, to bring what is essentially the world's biggest game of tag to television." Bank is executive producing the project, which is now being taken out to the broadcast networks, with David Russo, who brought the idea to him.
Frogger made an appearance on an episode of "Seinfeld." George tried to navigate and full sized Frogger arcade game across a busy New York City street. All the while, trying to keep the game plugged in so that he could preserve his high score.
My question is, "what's next?" Will there be a Q-Bert sitcom? Maybe a cable network will go undercover to find out if the UFO's on Space Invaders are a part of a government conspiracy. One thing is for sure, this story reeled me in, and I'll at least watch one episode out of curiosity.
