CBS Orders “Draw Something” Game Show Pilot
It’s been a busy few days for Sony Pictures and Michael Davies. We had the announcement of Mike Richards hosting GSN’s The Pyramid which tapes today. Now we have news that CBS has ordered a new pilot of theirs. CBS has ordered the show Draw Something, based on the popular iOS game, from Sony Pictures, Embassy Row, and Ryan Seacrest Productions. CBS won the pilot after a multiple network bidding war. The game was rumored to become a game show at the end of March 2012.
There are no details yet beyond the fact that Ryan Seacrest is not expected to host. Draw Something comes in a long line of drawing-based game shows, the most famous being NBC’s Win, Lose, or Draw.
CBS recently shot a pilot for another classic party-themed game show called Celebrity Name Game with host Craig Ferguson, but this was not picked up.
