Big Valleys aren't all that Susan Sarandon has been circling this year. She's planning to get a little sporty too.You might have heard that the actress is an investor in a nightclub called SPiN. But this is no place you head out for dancing grooves, drinks, and one-night stands. In fact, though it sounds like some sort of DJ establishment, it's far from it. With blue tables, teal floors, and 3-tier bleachers, it's a ping pong nightclub. Yep, you read that right. Sarandon is helping foster a new generation of Ping Pong Playas.

But that's not all. Now she wants to add a media spin to the club by creating a new reality show.
During a World Champions Event at the club, Sarandon told People that she's gearing up for a reality show, or in her words: "It's more of an episodic documentary. We're trying to invent something you haven't seen before that follows a bunch of people in this crazy little subculture." Thinking of herself as the "Johnny Appleseed of ping pong," Sarandon has already gotten filming underway, though she's "not sure where we're going to land in terms of our home because we want the tone of it to be funny and quite different than anything else that anybody's seen before."

I'm not quite sure what new ground is left in the world of reality shows. We've had everything from old-school Real World to weight loss, celebs, and people eating gross foods. Will it be the world's first 3D reality show, perhaps? Ping pong balls flying out of the screen with wild abandon as people try to live "normal" lives on camera?

Could reality ping pong work?
