The greatest charm of EA’s The Sims series is its absurd and creative nature that allows players to do whatever they want – well, almost – and build many different mods on the side.
An upcoming reality competition series based on the franchise seeks to retain that spirit of creativity, and it’ll be premiering on American TV channel TBS on July 17, 2020.

Called The Sims Spark’d, the four-episode show will pit 12 contestants in a host of timed skills and elimination challenges “to win the title of the world’s most creative storyteller”.
These tasks are built on the premise of storytelling through the game’s tools, such as character customisation and home design elements, which will then undergo judgement from a panel.
Players will be rewarded or eliminated accordingly, with the winner walking away with a U$100,000 (S$139,000) cash prize, and the mantle of the undisputed Sims master in the world.
