Bravo [Television Network] is apparently burning off the failed [emphasis added by Dick Eastman] NBC pilot on Thursday, September 15 at 5:00 a.m. eastern time according to the network's September air schedule. Here's how NBC's original PR described the project:
NBC is launching a nation-wide casting call for Americans who want to be reunited with long-lost loved ones for "Extreme Reunion," a new, unscripted reality special that will bring family, friends and lost loves back together again -- in spectacular and exciting ways that will change lives forever. The special will be produced by LMNO Productions, Inc. "Extreme Reunion" will utilize the vast tools found on MyFamily.com to research and connect people with friends and family worldwide. Bringing together out-of-touch family and friends has been a compelling source of television entertainment for decades-- most recently spurred by the power, speed and ease of the Internet.
