Food Network has started production on a Candy Land TV show, based on the classic Hasbro game.
Hosted by Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth, the six-episode competition features cake and sugar artists tasked with creating confectionary showpieces for a chance to win $25,000.
In order to win, players must make their way through the world of Candy Land seeking out different flavours and unique ingredients to use in each edible land as they work to reach their final destination: King Kandy’s Castle.
“Whether it is exploring the Peppermint Forest or a hike to the Gumdrop Mountains, Candy Land has long been a childhood staple, allowing players’ imaginations to run free,” said Food Network President Courtney White.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer our audience an escape to this magical land, and with Kristin Chenoweth as host, there is nobody better at taking viewers on this immersive journey for some fun and excitement.”
Chenoweth added: “I’m so excited for the world to see these talented confectionary artists and the incredible set. And I can’t wait to wear a dress again.”
