We already know that Hollywood ran out of ideas a long time ago, but it looks like that television is starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel as well. Merv Griffin apparently announced that he’s developing a reality show somehow based on Pac Man. Maybe this means that the reality show is in its quivering death throes. God I hope so.
In all seriousness, this is a “big, crazy Wipeout-type event” meant to “bring what is essentially the world’s biggest game of tag to television,” presumably by making a real-life Pac-Man board and then chasing people through it as they pick up cherries and bananas and the like for our amusement.
