Track & Field Reality Show?

Via the master's track blog:
Masters track is about dreams. And now a 35-year-old Fresno high school teacher and movie maker is dreaming REALLY big. Her name is Julia Dudley Najieb, and Monday she wrote about her plans to produce a "track & field reality game show." She envisions a series in which folks ages 32 to 52 train and compete to recapture the glory of their high school track days. And win money!

At first I thought this was a joke, but it appears serious. This proposal does not yet have a buyer, but how difficult can it be? I mean, CBS bought Pirate Master ("So craptacular, so bad, it's worth the damage to your mental well-being to spend the hour in blissful hate of this turd"), so you'd think anything can make it onto the airwaves these days.

I'll keep an eye on this and see how it develops.
