Dominica featured on new CBS show

Postby KarenS » Thu Apr 19, 2007 7:49 am

CBS will debute new Mark Burnett reality show Pirate Master May 31.

The show is a combination of Burnett's Survivor and Pirates of the Caribbean, with 16 people plucked from their comfort zone, as Burnett puts it, dressed in period costume, and sent off in a "pirate" ship to search of buried treasure totalling $1 million.

The show is set on and around the Caribbean island of Dominica. There will be challenges and vote-offs, with money doled out on each show and the big winner claiming $500,000.

What kind of wackos think it will be great fun to live on porridge, sleep in cramped bunks in the hull of an old sailing ship, and risk life and limb hunting through really rugged terrain for clues to a pirate treasure? "They're tough," says Mark Burnett, whose latest adventure reality show, Pirate Master, premieres on May 31. Sure, there's a total of $1 million at stake hidden around the Caribbean island of Dominica, but the daunting physical demands make Survivor's challenge look wimpy. "It's a really interesting diverse cast," says Burnett. "Everybody's a good athlete, but what they've learned is being a great pirate, you have to be really smart. When you're exhausted and you're trudging through a jungle, jumping off waterfalls or swimming up canyon lakes, you still have to think about what the pirate clues are.
