company, “veteran reality-TV producer” considering Soyuz space flight show.
Yet another company and producer is considering filming a reality TV show that involves a trip to space. Space Adventures” has an agreement with the Russian Aviation and Space Agency for two seats on a Soyuz flight to the space station in early 2005, or perhaps in 2004,” according to MSNBC’s Alan Boyle. He reports that company’s CEO is “working with a veteran reality-TV producer to see whether U.S. television networks would have an interest in a show like ‘Survivor in Space.’” He won’t name the producer, and they’re also “looking into several options for using those seats, including the TV show, a spaceflight lottery or big-ticket rides along the lines of those purchased by its previous millionaire clients.” Earlier, Mark Burnett tried to produce Destination Mir, which all but ended once Mir came to earth; then, ‘NSync star Lance Bass was to go into space and have his training and mission filmed; most recently, Pepsi considered a $35 million show following someone who would take a trip on a Russian Soyuz shuttle to the space station.
