Virgin boss SIR Richard Branson has landed a new reality TV series, documenting his efforts to make space tourism a reality.
Branson unveiled his VSS Enterprise spacecraft last month (Dec09) with plans to launch the first Virgin Galactic flights in 2011.
National Geographic Channel's four-episode Virgin Galactic series will follow the billionaire mogul and engineer Burt Rutan's efforts to send 50,000 people into space over a 10-year period.
The series is Branson's second foray into TV in recent months. Reality series Fly Girls, about flight attendants on his Virgin America Airline, is currently in production for U.S. network CW.
Virgin Galactic is set to premiere in the spring (10).
