NBC Alternate Realities
NBC is now moving forward on "Sweet Revenge" and "Nerves of Steel." "Sweet Revenge" is a hidden-camera series and "Nerves of Steel" pits two teams against each other trying to outdo the other in rigorous contests. After being high on the project several months ago, NBC execs cited "creative differences" with Endemol over "Chains of Love," where four or five men would have been chained together with one female contestant for a week.
On Destination Mir, NBC executives say they are still going forward with plans for the summer series despite Russia's apparent plans to bring down the Mir space station. Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Ilya Klebanov told a Russian news agency earlier in the week that government may bring down the aging space station in February. NBC's Destination Mir is scheduled for next summer.
