Think you’ve got what it takes to travel to Space? Now might be your chance to prove it. A production company is looking all across the world for contestants to compete on a reality show that will launch the winner into space for 10 days about a SpaceX Dragon Rocket. Space Hero Inc. is a US-based production company that already has a seat lined up and ready to go aboard a mission to the International Space Station in 2023. Now the company is looking for just the right contestants and a streaming service to house the show.
The unscripted reality competition titled Space Hero is set to be produced by Ben Silverman and Howard Owens’ Propagate, with contestants chosen from around the globe, Deadline reports. Competitors will really have to be passionate about space to get through the extensive training that will test physical, emotional, and mental strength to see if they have what it takes to board the mission.
“We see the world changing in front of our eyes. In times like these we yearn to look up to people for the right reasons, so it’s time to look amongst ourselves to find the heroes that will inspire a bright future,” said Thomas Reemer, the project’s creator and founding partner of Space Hero Inc.
Now the production company is reportedly exploring streaming options to distribute the show globally with local broadcast partners in each country so viewers around the world can vote for the winner. It sounds like the show will chronicle the challenges leading up to a winner, and then follow the ‘hero’ on their mission to space, the 10-day experience to the International Space Station, and the journey home.
“Space Hero is the new frontier for the entertainment sector, offering the first-ever truly off-planet experience. We aim to reinvent the reality TV category by creating a multi-channel experience that offers the biggest prize ever, to the biggest audience possible,” said Marty Pompadur who leads Space Hero Inc. “Space Hero is about opening space up to everyone – not only to astronauts and billionaires.”
“We’re so excited to go on this extraordinary journey with this ambitious global team,” said Propagate co-CEOs Owens and Silverman. “There’s never been a more important time to look beyond ourselves and reach for the skies above. This could be not only the biggest but the most important show in the history of the television and we are thrilled to be involved.”
