With classic video games like The Sims and Spore under his belt, Will Wright is devoting his creativity to a form of media that truly needs it - -reality television. IGN recently learned that Wright will be helping produce a program called The Creation Project, in which viewers will be able to submit their story ideas, discuss them, and vote for a favorite. The winner will have their idea turned into two half hour episodes. The amount of episodes devoted to discovering the idea has not been disclosed, nor has the network that the program will air on -- though Current is listed as an affiliate for the project.
In addition to aiding in the production of the series alongside Spike TV founder Albie Hecht, Wright's engine-creation skills will be put to use for The Creation Project. Users will be able to submit their story ideas using a new creation of Wright's-- the "StoryMaker Engine."
We'll be sure to pass along new information regarding Wright's next venture as we learn about it. In the meantime, what do you think of this TV show idea?
