Draw Something is coming to the small screen after a deal to make it into a television games show was finalised.

The format will see both celebrities and members of the public try to guess each other’s virtual drawings in front of a live audience. Though full details of how the game show will play out are yet to emerge, it is thought the show will be interactive with folks at home also able to play via the mobile app. 

Ryan Seacrest’s (America’s answer to Dermot O’Leary) production company is part of the team to have put the show together, though it’s thought he won’t actually present the show.

Somewhat ironically, news of this announcement comes at a time when fewer and fewer people are playing the mobile app. After enjoying meteoric success when launched in March, its popularity - and the number of players - has begun to dwindle.

Perhaps a TV game show will revitalise interest.
