It was really only a matter of time — Twitter is ready to make the jump from your computer screen to your TV.
Reveille Productions and Brillstein Entertainment Partners are developing a reality show around the increasingly popular website, according to the Associated Press. The show would feature players using Twitter to follow their favorite celebrities while competing in an interactive challenge.
Although those behind Twitter support the proposed project, co-founder Biz Stone blogged that Twitter isn't involved in the making of this show, presumably because the site has other issues to resolve before tackling TV. "Some Hollywood folks are developing something that leverages Twitter and they are extremely enthusiastic, as evidenced by all the media hubbub yesterday and today," Stone wrote. "We have little to do with their efforts, but we wish them success."
Producer Noah Oppenheim said the show would be the first to bring the immediacy of the site to TV. No official deal is in place yet, but as soon as a network agrees, "we're ready to go into production," Oppenheim said.
Reveille produces reality shows The Biggest Loser and American Gladiators, as well as such scripted programs as The Office, Ugly Betty and The Tudors.
Twitter was founded in 2007 and increased its unique visitors from 475,000 in February 2008 to 7 million a year later. With or without a TV show, you can follow TVGuide.com on Twitter for the latest breaking news and scoop.
