Syfy, Trion Team Up for One Earth MMO/TV Show

Back in July 2009, job listings on Trion World Networks' Web site hinted that the company is developing an MMO in conjunction with the Syfy network. Well, it was officially confirmed this week that the groups are working on a project called One Earth that combines an MMO with a television show.

"In this unique set-up, we can do things that other people would never even dare before: create a video game world and a television show. They not only promote each other, they literally depend on each other and co-evolve," said Trion CEO Lars Butler. You can find out more about the project in a video on the GE Reports site.

One Earth is spurred on by an investment from NBC Universal's and GE Capital's Peacock Equity fund. More details on the fund can be found in today's GE Reports post.
