"The Real Gilligan's Island" features two sets of castaways -- contestants playing characters from the 1960s TV show -- competing in a series of "Survivor"-type challenges. The group will be narrowed down to a final cast of seven -- Gilligan, the Skipper, Ginger, etc. -- who will then see if they can do better than the 1960s crew in getting off the island.
