"I can't even start shooting [Live for the Moment] until the end of September, when I'm back from double duty on Survivor," he toldThe New York Post in a Tuesday report. "The earliest I could have episodes done would be January."
Assuming Probst's Live for the Moment explanation is accurate, it would represent the first time ever that Survivor has ever filmed two seasons back-to-back. While Survivor's fall editions traditionally film during the summer, the show's spring editions are usually filmed in November and early December and wrap production just prior to CBS' broadcast of the fall edition's finale.
CBS formally ordered the nineteenth and twentieth editions of Survivor for broadcast during the upcoming 2009-2010 season in February.
