'Space Race' is One Reality Show You'll Want to Watch
You know we like to follow the goings on of Sir Richard Branson and his Virgin Galactic project, and now we’ll be able to do from the comfort of our couch. Virgin Galactic is teaming up with the mastermind behind shows like Survivor and The Voice—Mark Burnett—to launch a reality show to give away a ride into space.
Details are limited at this point, but we’d imagine that things would follow the basic premise of pretty much all reality shows. Unique personalities, wacky competitions, and plenty of drama should lead to a show worthy of a spot on our DVR. We do know that the show will be called "Space Race," and the big winner will get a ride aboard SpaceShipTwo.
Apparently the folks over at Virgin Galactic will open the doors for a behind-the-scenes look during the filing of the show, so hopefully we can see some neat stuff between all the other reality show junk. It sounds like NBC is throwing some cash at the project, but as of now no word on when things will be premiering. Stay tuned!
