Waka-waka or just wacky? Beloved '80s arcade game Pac-Man is coming to life in a new reality series.
According to Deadline.com, Merv Griffin Entertainment is developing an unscripted show about the pellet-eating yellow blob that was chased through a maze by Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde. The series coincides with the 30th anniversary of the iconic video game.
Merv Griffin's president of TV, Roy Bank, describes the upcoming Pac-Man project as a "big, crazy, 'Wipeout'-type event with a lot of energy. 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."
The world's biggest game of tag on television? Sounds...interesting. What do you think?
