Sorry if this has been discussed already but I did a search and turned up nothing. Has anyone else heard about Sir Richard Branson's new reality series "The Rebel Billionaire: Branson's Quest for the Best" which will be airing on FOX later this year in the U.S.??? I saw the commercial the other day. Here is a press release from tvtome.com:
Sir Richard Branson, the colorful founder and Chairman of the Virgin Group of Companies, teams with award-winning Bunim-Murray Productions (The Simple Life & The Real World) to lead a group of young entrepreneurs on an epic journey around the world, testing their mettle by having them relive some of his own colorful adventures. If they make decisions that impress Branson, they will continue. But each week, one candidate will be left behind on the tarmac as the rest of the group jets off to the next adventure.
-FOX press release
At least 6 episodes will air starting November 2004. The show will feature the biggest prize in reality TV history. Branson is looking for a young, charismatic individual to follow in his footsteps.
