Waka waka waka reality tv show
Waka waka waka! PAC-MAN, is headed to reality TV. Merv Griffin Entertainment has teamed up with Namco Bandai Games, to develop an unscripted series based on the hugely popular video game. This marks the first major foray into TV for PAC-MAN whose only previous TV presence was a short-lived animated series in the early 1980s. The project also coincides with the 30th anniversary of the best-selling game and 1980s pop culture icon.
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.” The project is now being taken out to the broadcast networks in America. I have tried to search for some updates but can’t find anything at the moment, rest assured I shall have my finger on the button and as soon as something is announced I will let you guys know.
