TBS Offers Sneak Peak at the Seven Stranded Castaways of THE REAL GILLIGAN'S ISLAND

One of television�s most enduring comedies gets the ultimate makeover when TBS, television�s �very funny� network, launches the hilarious new reality series THE REAL GILLIGAN�S ISLAND. The series, in which seven people who personify the original Gilligan�s Island characters are stranded on an island and challenged to find a way off, is executive-produced by Mike Fleiss (The Bachelor, The Bachelorette). The father/son team of Sherwood Schwartz, the creator of the original Gilligan�s Island sitcom, and Lloyd Schwartz, also serve as executive producers. THE REAL GILLIGAN�S ISLAND will set sail on TBS with a special two-hour premiere Tuesday, Nov. 30, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).

Viewers are eager to find out who the cast members will be on THE REAL GILLIGAN�S ISLAND, with speculation on the casting of the movie star running particularly high. Here�s a sneak peek at the cast (from left to right):

- A real-life millionaire, who owns 26 different companies, and his wife, who is a television personality

- A skipper who is the fleet captain at his local boat club, a commercial fisherman and a harbor master

- A bumbling first mate who while working at a marina once crashed a million-dollar boat into another million-dollar boat

- A beautiful small-town girl whose mother made her learn how to open a coconut with a rock and make a coconut cream pie when she was cast on the show

- A professor from a major California university

- A high-maintenance but fun-loving movie star who will be featured in three movies in 2004

TBS is television�s �very funny� network, serving as home to such hot contemporary comedies as Sex and the City, Everybody Loves Raymond, Family Guy, Seinfeld and Friends; high-profile original reality series, such as the upcoming He�s a Lady and The Mansion; blockbuster movies; and hosted movie showcases.

Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., an AOL Time Warner company, is a major producer of news and entertainment product around the world and the leading provider of programming for the basic cable industry.
