After years of giving up precious hours to watch our B-list celebrities do stuff, we’re now sort of over it, and just want to blast them into space.
That too, we can do via reality show. In development right now is a show called Milky Way Mission (which should be sponsored by M&M/Mars) in which celebs do the usual boot camp preparation and then, presumably, get sent out to space, never to be brought back.
The second one is from Survivor creator Mark Burnett, which features celebs competing for a spot on Virgin’s rocket to space. Not much is known about this show, except that it involves the planetary exile of celebrities, so it is excellent.
