New NBC Series: Crusoe - Fall 2008
Last October, news broke that NBC had greenlit production for a pilot based on the famous novel, ďRobinson Crusoe.Ē The series, titled Crusoe mustíve made a good impression on the network because theyíve added it to their fall line-up.
Hereís the information NBC released about the series:
ď CRUSOE - Based on the legendary novel by Daniel Defoe, this is the tale of Robinson Crusoe. A young man leaves his true love to embark on an adventure -- only to end up shipwrecked on a remote tropical island for 28 years, completely detached from the life he once knew. His desire to return to his wife and his strong and unlikely friendship with Friday are the only things that keep him sane. While stranded, Crusoe encounters enemies and braves the elements. Equal parts ďMacGyver,Ē ďCastawayĒ and ďPirates of the Caribbean,Ē this series is an inspirational tale of survival rife with action and comedy. Power Entertainment produces ďCrusoe.Ē
Right now Crusoe is set to air on Friday nights. As this series looks/sounds like itíll be family friendly, Iím thinking Fridayís the perfect place to put it. Maybe itís because NBC is using MacGyver, Castaway and Pirates of the Caribbean to describe the series but it sounds like it might actually be a really fun show. Strangely enough, the network hasnít listed any cast members for the series just yet, so no clue if Crusoe will be played by someone known or if itíll be someone totally new.
