FarmVille, the addictive farming simulation game, is moving on to bigger pastures...on the small screen.

Today it was announced that Brett Ratner, producer to TV series such as Prison Break and 21, has signed on with Six Eleven Media to produce an animated series based off the social media game. Who said farming couldn't be entertaining? 

No specific details have been released yet on how they plan to create a plot based off a farming sim, and no network has been attached to the project. 

Ratner just wrapped up directing the new Dwayne Johnson movie, entitled Hercules: The Thracian Wars, so this is a huge departure from what we've seen him do.  

But with a sequel releasing just last fall and now a TV show potentially on the horizon, Farmville is hardly slowing down. 

Do you think this is a risky venture? Would you watch just to see how it pans out?
