Will Wright, the creator of The Sims, is launching a new TV show on CurrentTV called Bar Karma. It’s a very unique show and we’ve been following it since its inception. Users are able to help create and control the show’s storylines and plot development. Each week the producers will provide the audience with a rough outline for the upcoming episode, viewers then have the ability to create storyboards using tools provided of unlimited plot possibilities. They then browse, comment, and merge various ideas for the episode. Final proposals are reviewed, voted on, and made into an episode. These will be full 30 minute episodes.
