Will Wright, creator of the

Sims video game, has inked a development deal with Fox, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "It could be a sitcom or something completely different," says Mike Darnell, the network's executive VP of alternative programming in specials. "This deal's not about taking a game and turning it into a TV show; it's about creating new entertainment franchises." However, a separate deal is in the works to bring Sims to the small screen.
