Zynga is bringing the “Draw Something” game to television. Draw Something will be made into a new primetime game show according to Variety. The pilot was picked up by CBS after a bidding war. The show will be produced by Sony Pictures Television, Embassy Row, and Ryan Seacrest Productions. The pilot will put celebrities and users against each other in front of a studio audience. When Zynga bought Draw Something parent company OMGPOP, the game had 9 million users. Now they have slightly over 5 million and Zynga is hoping that the TV show will increase interest in the game again.
