Big Fish Entertainment and Rovio Entertainment are collaborating on Angry Birds Challenge, the first live-action game show of the mobile game property.

The series will place participants into the world of Angry Birds as they compete in super-sized obstacle courses – equipped with a human slingshot – with the aim of saving the most eggs to be named the winner. Contestants will get to pick their own challenges as part of the strategy for finishing the course the fastest.

Angry Birds Challenge (working title) will include all of the features of the popular game, including defense zones of water, wood, ice and stone barriers; and the green “bad piggies” obstacles.

Big Fish president Dan Cesareo¬†and chief creative officer Lucilla D’Agostino¬†serve as executive producers, as well as Jeff Bennett and Joe Lawson, head of content licensing for Rovio.

“To see contestants actually step into the world of the game and share the exhilaration of being launched and other jaw-dropping challenges to save the eggs will be awesome for families to watch together. And seeing them fail will be even more fun,” said Lawson in a statement.
