TV show description:
From executive producer Grant Kahler and Nomad Entertainment, the Castaways TV show is like if Survivor and Lost had a reality TV series baby, complete with flashbacks to the subjects’ pre-island life.
With the stated aim of “testing the human need for companionship under extreme circumstances,” Castaways follows real people who have been dropped on small Indonesian islands, with the challenge to survive. Other than their wits, the only tools at their disposal are the luggage that washed ashore, abandoned structures they find, and resources the
Dharma Initiative production has scattered about.
At different points after the castaways land, they each learn there are “others” like them out there, but they do not know who, how many, or where to find them. Their only options are to persevere until they are rescued, or quit the series. Will there be fish biscuits? Stay tuned.
Episode #10 — We Got This
Two castaways come across an abandoned camp full of journals and resources left by other survivors. Deep reflection forces all castaways to question their ability to stay, forcing yet another to quit. The remaining survivors reflect on their time on the island and how their lives will change if they are ever rescued.
First aired: September 18, 2018.
