The Sims Spark'd is a brand new, first of its kind reality show which sees talented Sims players come together and compete against each other for a chance to win $100,000. Contestants are tasked with a variety of difficult challenges which involve everything from intricate Sim design to telling elaborate stories using Sims. Essentially, it puts all Sims skills to the test.

The first season of The Sims Spark'd has already been filmed but viewers at home will have a chance to take part in various challenges and win prizes too. This isn't for the faint of heart though. The trailer shows that the series is surprisingly high-stakes and emotional, with contestants breaking down as they attempt to make their way through the competition.

The series is set to start airing on TBS on July 17 but it will also be available on YouTube from July 20 via BuzzFeed Multiplayer.

In a statement about the series, the show's executive producer, Lyndsay Pearson, said: "Since its inception, The Sims has been a groundbreaking experience, allowing players to create and virtually live out the stories they create in-game. That’s what makes it so special."

Lyndsay continued: "The Sims Spark’d continues that innovative spirit, bringing our community together to compete and showcase their in-game storytelling on a reality show in an entirely new way."
