Russian network will air space reality TV show produced by Mark Burnett.
The “winner of a planned Russian reality TV show” will head into space on a Soyuz craft next year, Space.com reports. If it sounds like Destination: Mir, a show planned by Mark Burnett a few years ago, there’s good reason; the show will be produced by Mark Burnett, according to Space.com’s sources. The site reports that the pool of Russians interested will be narrowed via “athletic and other competitions”; then, “a ‘small group’ would be selected to participate in a televised survival show similar to the television series ‘Survivor,’” and the final two will “undergo training at the Gagarin center in the Star City outside Moscow.”
