More Burnett-inspired news…

I’m interested in Burnett’s other upcoming projects, On The Lot and Pirate Master (a reality competition with people who want to be pirates….crazy, summer reality fare).

On The Lot will premiere on FOX on Tuesday, May 22nd.  I’m looking forward to this one simply because of the teaming up with Steven Spielberg.  It should be a great look behind the scenes of how movies get made too…..Intriguing.   Here’s the official description to tide you over.

  “From Mark Burnett, Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks Television, ON THE LOT affords aspiring filmmakers the         opportunity of a lifetime: a $1-million DreamWorks development deal. And, 12,000 people submitted their films for         consideration. ON THE LOT will feature filmmakers who will produce short films in every genre every week and the        viewers will vote on who gets eliminated. ”  (via the official homepage)

And the other, Pirate Master, will premiere on Thursday, May 31st.  It takes over for Survivor in the coveted “Thursday at 7” slot….I’m wondering if this one will sink or swim….but I’m willing to give it a shot.  Hopefully it doesn’t walk the plank too fast….(haha….ok, no more puns).   Here’s a description I found (courtesy Reality Mania).

  “In Pirate Master: The Adventure Begins, 16 ordinary people living aboard a real pirate ship compete in an extraordinary Caribbean adventure in pursuit of hidden treasure – a bounty with a total value of one million dollars. Each week, one competitor is “set adrift” from the pirate ship that they have called home until only three remain in the hunt for the ultimate treasure of all. “

Summer TV may slightly improve over what I previously thought…We’ll see.
