NEW YORK- An out-of-this-world prize awaits the winner of a new game show on NBC.

It'll be called "Space Race" and TV producer Mark Burnett will team with Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic where the winner will get a ride into space on Virgin's aircraft.

Burnett produces "The Voice" on NBC and "survivor" on CBS.

Virgin is testing its rocket-powered space vehicle with the goal of taking paying customers into space.

Branson and his children are supposed to be the first to ride sometime next year.
