Stars on Mars: The celebrities sent to fake Mars in new reality show – Polygon
Are you ready for a bizarre new reality show? Fox is sending a group of celebrities to “fake Mars” in a new show called “Stars on Mars.” The premise of the show is that these celebrities will be participating in a simulated mission to Mars, complete with isolation and astronaut training.
So who are the brave celebs that have signed up for this out-of-this-world experience? The cast includes:
- William Shatner
- Lance Bass
- Joey Fatone
- Laila Ali
- Carrie Keagan
- Travis Merritt
- Sebastian Terry
- Anna Cathcart
- Kenton Duty
How will the show work? According to Polygon, the participants will be living in a module on a red sand-filled soundstage in Burbank, California. From there, they will particulate in tasks designed to simulate a Mars mission, such as testing tools and equipment, conducting experiments, and exploring the surrounding terrain.
The show creators are hoping to create a compelling and realistic portrayal of a mission to Mars, all while incorporating the interpersonal drama that comes with putting a group of strangers in a confined space for an extended period of time.
Of course, not everyone is excited about this new show. Critics say that it trivializes the hard work that actual astronauts put into training for and participating in a Mars mission. Others have raised concerns about the environmental impact of creating a large-scale set and using resources to simulate a mission that won’t actually have any scientific value.
The Release Date
So when can we expect to see “Stars on Mars”? As of now, Fox has not announced an official release date, but we can expect to see it sometime in the near future.
Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that “Stars on Mars” is a unique and ambitious concept for a reality show. We’ll just have to wait and see if it lives up to the hype.
