If the Angry Birds movie made you angry, then this story will make you candy. CBS has announced its plans to air a game show adaptation of the stupidly popular mobile app, Candy Crush Saga. The hourlong series will feature two-player teams making their way through giant interactive boards, obstacles, various levels, and just life in general.

There is also going to be a play-along option for home viewers, to which you might respond, “Why don’t I just play the actual original mobile game then?” But if you do that, you will miss out on the near-certain celebrity episode and its inevitable Ken Bone appearance.

There is no word yet on whether the set design will consist of actual candy or just props.
