reports that Will Wright has closed a deal with Fox Broadcasting to create a TV Series. Over the past year, Wright has been toying with the idea to create a new show. Although the show signed for doesn't look like it's going to be about The Sims (but more like robots or something else), we might see the game in a different show through a separate deal. Here's a bit Will says about the deal:
"I'd like to fast-forward into the future a bit and explore how machines and artificial intelligence will impact human beings and how robots will help us define ourselves. The trick is going to be to hook a mass audience with a new concept and then Trojan-horse these ideas into the show."
Earlier attempts by Wright to make a film of The Sims with help from Columbia TriStar Entertainment fell through, but there are now talks with a different company. Which we don't know, perhaps it's Fox as well. When Wright's show will be aired, what its name is and what it'll be like, is yet unknown. For more detailed information, click here
