Will Wright Creating Reality TV?

The mastermind behind Sim City, The Sims, and Spore may be veering away from video games for his next project. Rumors are indicating that gaming industry legend Will Wright is currently working on a cross between a simulation and a television called The Creation Project.

According to a report from IGN, which claims to have seen planning documents for the series, Wright's next project involves taking a user-submitted story and airing it as two separate episodes. The user creations will be made using the StoryMaker Engine developed by Wright, and will then submitted online and via mobile devices and voted on by the user community.

The Creation Project
is still in the development phase, which means that any and all of the conceptual foundations could be tweaked before it actually sees production.

What do you think of the idea so far? Does this sound like a show you'd watch?
