Fantasy Island Becomes Reality Series

Reality show magnate Mark Burnett and Sony Pictures TV are teaming to turn iconic series “Fantasy Island” into a reality show says Variety.

Ricardo Montalban starred in the original late 1970s/early ’80s series as the mystical Mr. Roarke – a man who made island visitors’ dreams come true.

The reality show version will follow twelve contestants as they compete to become the real-life Mr. or Ms. Roarke. No network deal is yet in place, but they will begin shopping the show immediately.
