Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Kristin Chenoweth, CANDY LAND is a one-hour competition series that begins with five teams of cake and sugar artists, who create confectionary showpieces while trying to avoid weekly elimination. The first team to make it to King Kandy's Castle wins the game and earns the grand prize of $25,000. Each episode features the teams stepping into one of the eye-popping lands come to life, including giant candy canes in the Peppermint Forest, life-size gumdrops at the Gumdrop Mountains, a real life gingerbread house at Chocolate Mountain, enormous and luscious lollipops in the Lollipop Woods, and lemons growing right off the vines in the Lemon Lime Springs. The players must forage for flavors and unique ingredients within each land to use for their sugar masterpieces before presenting to judges Nacho Aguirre and Aarti Sequeira who determine which teams advance down the board game path based on creativity, technical execution, and how well the candies of the land were incorporated. The five teams are named after colors, just like the playing pieces in the board game:

- Blue Team (Brittani Diehl, Cinthya Romriell, Eric Kroeker and Reva Alexander-Hawk)
- Orange Team (Deavynne Millward, Tiffany Lightfoot, Sasha Naryzhny and Thierry Aujard)
- Pink Team (Alexis Nicole, Andrew Fuller, Robert Nieto and Mona Marwaha)
- Red Team (Jewel Johnson, Deva Williamson, Ray Miranda-Vizcaino and Linda Khachadurian)
- Yellow Team (Miriam Adar, Jamilla Phillip, Jordan Pilarski and Grace Pak).

In the series opener, "Magical Creatures," Chenoweth welcomes the players to Candy Land before presenting the teams with their first challenge to create mystical and magical creatures the likes of which have never been seen before. Each team must present their work of art to Nacho and Aarti to see which team's time in Candy Land has come to an end. Other episodes feature the teams designing inventive and edible means of transportation for the citizens of Candy Land, creating beautiful upgrades for the town squares within each land, and a final challenge with the last teams standing thinking outside the box to deliver a one-of-a-kind gift that will need to impress King Kandy.

Immediately after the series opener, David Bromstad hosts a one-hour special on Sunday, November 15 at 10pm, as he treats viewers to an exclusive peek into the making of each land and the creative process of the minds that are undertaking this monumental challenge, along with learning the history of the iconic Hasbro game that continues to be a childhood favorite. Whether it is over a 100 pounds of chocolate used for Chocolate Mountain or 1,000 lollipops needed to create the Lollipop Woods, Bromstad takes viewers behind the scenes to see how the set of Candy Land comes to life.
