Castaway is “Survivor without the greed.”
BBC America just started airing a year-long quasi-Survivor show. For one year, 28 adults and eight children will live on the Hebridean island of Taransay just “for the hell of it.” Like the CBS show, they’re followed by cameras and live in two tribes, but they’re not competing against each other; they just have to survive.
