The film and television producer Andrea lervolino wants to take the sport of mixed martial arts into space. This has been manifested through his social networks, where the founder of Space 11, an entertainment company that creates television shows, has announced its latest and most ambitious project.
The Italian-Canadian businessman has christened the program as Galactic combat (Galactic Combat). And his desire to broadcast it on television under the reality format is evident on his Twitter page, where he recently announced that this would not be just a show, but even a new sport.
It is known, until now, that the dynamics would consist of three phases in which mixed martial arts fighters from all over the world would be seen.
The first would be a competition lasting just under a year, in which 40 fighters from different countries would learn to fight again, but under the conditions of zero gravity. Here, 32 participants would be eliminated and only eight would remain.
In the second phase, after training and elimination, the semifinal pairs would be formed that would dispute their pass to the final.
Finally, in the third and final phase, the two fighters who made it to the final would travel into space in an orbital rocket that inside has a special fighting capsule adapted for the event.
It has been announced that the mixed martial arts reality show would have 24 episodes of one hour each. These would be broadcast in the period of one year, during which it could also be seen via streaming with additional content from the training sessions.
In this way, the trend for space begins to take hold in a context where not only the great millionaires want to reach Mars or build cities outside the Earth, but the first entirely recorded reality television could also be carried out. in the space.
In 2020, it was also announced that Tom cruise would record a film entirely shot in space, and that the American production company Spread I was preparing another program called Space hero under the same mechanics of space travel.
