Hey everyone, I read this stuff all the time, but have never posted - until now. I have some inside info!
As you heard Mark Burnett Productions and CBS just announced its new ‘pirate-themed’ reality show for summer ‘07, but word is there is another one making the rounds that is 'totally awesome'. A friend of mine who has seen the deck says it takes place in the British Virgin Islands and is really smart with lots of cool twists! An 'Amazing Race', meets 'Survivor', meets 'Big Brother'
It's been presented to ABC and CBS, but CBS already had the other one in the works. Not sure why ABC didn’t jump all over it - but then again, look at what they green-lighted this summer! Not sure if NBC or FOX has seen it - but proably will.
Supposedly, the creators are a couple of 'non-hollywood' types . .
Will try to get more more.
Yeah, that's the CBS/Burnett show. I am trying to get some more info on this one because it sounded great.
My college buddy saw the concept, deck, treatment - whatever they call them from a producer friend of his in LA back in June - right after it was at ABC. He said it had boats and islands and had a lot of cool, new stuff. I thought it was the CBS show, but its not.
He's supposed to give me a call. Will post more when I find out.
