Space emerges as key TV battleground in 2014

09 January 2014

Space travel is fast emerging as a brand new frontier for TV producers in 2014.

Channel 4 announced today that it will broadcast a live two hour show in March from the International Space Station (ISS), as it orbits the Earth.

Produced by Arrow Media, the Live from Space Season “takes live event television to a new dimension” according to creative director Tom Brisely.

Meanwhile, Sony Pictures Television is readying a new format called Milky Way Mission which sees ten celebrities battle to become one of the astronauts taking part in a space flight organised by the Space Expedition Corporation.

And NBC is teaming with Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic and veteran TV producer Mark Burnett on Space Race, a competition where the winner gets a ride on the space liner that is expected to begin commercial flights this year.
