He is famous for creating games like The Sims and Spore, but now games creator Will Wright is turning his hand to television shows.

Quiet since 2008 when he reported that he was about to start work on other projects, leaked documents show that the new show, to be launched in the US later this year, will be called "The Creation Project" says IGN, who've managed to come across secret documents detailing the plans.

According to the gaming site, The Creation Project is a TV series about the creation of a TV series, with the winning storyline actually produced before airing as two half-hour episodes.

Where Will Wright supposedly comes into play is by helping the production team involve the audience with something it's calling the "StoryMaker Engine" that Wright has designed himself.

Ideas, where you get to watch some one play God, will no doubt be in there somewhere.
