Pac-Man Finally Getting His Own 'Reality' Series

Because you demanded it, Namco is finally bringing the 1980 arcade sensation Pac-Man to unscripted television. Think Wipeout (the pratfall-soaked game show) or the Amazing Race, not so much Jersey Shore, for Pac-Man's "reality" TV outing.

According to a report from Deadline, the Pac-Man television pitch will be a "big, crazy Wipeout-type event with a lot of energy" in the form of "the world's biggest game of tag." So says Merv Griffin Entertainment president of TV Roy Bank.

Pac-Man already has a previous television commitment, thanks to ex-Marvel chief Avi Arad. He's working with Namco Bandai on an animated series about Pac-Man's ghost-hunting high school days.
