Pac-Man Reality TV Show in Development

Post by Sid Seadevil on Mon Jan 17, 2011 3:27 pm

Yes, you read the title right.

Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Merv Griffin Entertainment has hammered out a deal with Namco Bandai to develop a reality TV show based on Pac-Man. Envisioned by Merv Griffin Entertainment's president of TV Roy Bank as something "big" and "crazy" like Wipeout or Fear Factor, the company wants "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." If this doesn't sound like the definition of a mid-season replacement, we don't know what is.

Could it be that reality TV has finally jumped the shark? (I can hope for that, can't I?)

It did a while ago. Then the shark got his own TV show (about his wacky family and their unlikely adventures) to rehab his image.
