    Gilligan's Island: The Reality Series

    Coming soon: a new reality show about a disparate group of castaways doing weird things while stranded miles from civilization.

    You think we're talking about the next version of "Survivor"?

    Not us, little buddy. We're hipping you to the premise of "Gilligan's Island: The Reality Series."

    No kidding.

    Sherwood Schwartz, the octogenarian creator of "Gilligan" (and "The Brady Bunch"), has cooked up a reality knockoff of his 40-year-old sitcom that is scheduled to debut later this year on TBS.

    TBS will get a real-life skipper, first mate, millionaire couple, movie star, Kansas farm girl and professor. They'll be dropped onto an uncharted desert isle and asked to work to get off the island. The show will put them in situations that mirror events from the original.

    One can only wish that Don Rickles will return as the kidnapper who swiped Mrs. Howell, then all of the girls, one at a time.

    Ok....

    I gotta tell ya....

    In all seriousness...

    I think this is the BEST idea for a reality show YET! This could prove to be absolutely hilarious, and just the fun of guessing which of the old shows they're going to feature will be totally worth the weekly wait between episodes. Or..."Here's a half dozen coconuts, a downed WWII airplane and your old radio...now get yourself off the island!"

    I wonder if they have a giant spider waiting in the wings....?

    OMG, this is the first I have heard of it. I think it would be fun. Think there will be headhunters, too? And the Volcano? This would definately be one to watch.

    I am a closet Gilligan fan since about 5/6 years ago. I think this is a great idea and can't wait to watch it. Don't forget the constant natives landing on the island. Any more info on this? I am so stoked.

    That is beyond weird. A show that has not yet been casted, getting two seasons???

    They really must think they have a gem.
