Deadline Hollywood reports Sony Pictures Television will introduce a new reality series format at MIPCOM — Milky Way Mission — which will send celebrities into space.
Milky Way Mission, created by Tuvalu Media and Simpel Media, features 10 celebrities living in a special bootcamp where they undergo a rigorous and intensive training program in preparation to become an astronaut.
...each week the stars face a series of extreme physical and mental challenges, with final rounds taking place at the launch site in Mojave, CA. The series already has been sold to Dutch network Nederland 1, which has commissioned eight hourlong episodes.
Sony's agreement is with Netherlands-based Space Expedition Corporation (SXC) using XCOR Aerospace's Lynx suborbital vehicle.
