NBC Show Will Send Someone into Space

Thursday, 03 Oct 2013 01:54 PM

NBC says it will air a competition show with an out-of-this-world prize: a ride into space.

The network said Thursday that TV producer Mark Burnett is teaming with Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic on "Space Race," a game where the winner will get a ride on Virgin's aircraft atop the Earth's atmosphere.

Virgin has been testing its rocket-powered space vehicle with the goal of taking paid customers into space. Virgin said the plan is for Branson and his children to be the first civilians to take a ride sometime next year.

Burnett produces "The Voice" on NBC and "Survivor" on CBS.
