Arcpy to convert a dataset in GCS_WGS_1984 to Sphere_Cylindrical_Equal_Area

I am trying to project a dataset in GCS_WGS_1984 to Sphere_Cylindrical_Equal_Area using arcpy.Project_management and am getting the following error:

arcgisscripting.ExecuteError: Failed to execute. Parameters are not valid.

 

Here is my code block:

 

arcpy.Project_magagement(CIM_TDC, CIM_eqArea, r"PROJCS['Sphere_Cylindrical_Equal_Area'," +\

r"GEOGCS['GCS_Sphere'," + \

r"DATUM['D_Sphere'," + \

r"SPHEROID['Sphere',6371000.0,0.0]]," + \

r"PRIMEM['Greenwich',0.0]," + \

r"UNIT['Degree',0.0174532925199433]]," + \

r"PROJECTION['Cylindrical_Equal_Area']," + \

r"PARAMETER['False_Easting',0.0]," + \

r"PARAMETER['False_Northing',0.0]," + \

"rPARAMETER['Central_Meridian',0.0]," + \

r"PARAMETER['Standard_Parallel_1',0.0]," + \

r"UNIT['Meter',1.0]]")

 

I think I need to define a geographic transformation but am not sure which one.  Any help is greatly appreciated.
