The iconic television series Gilligan’s Island is shown somewhere in the world every hour of every day. Amazingly, the most famous “3 Hour Tour” in TV history is still sailing over 40 years later on primetime TV. Fans of the classic Castaways can now watch Gilligan’s Island weeknights from 8:00 to 9:00 PM E/P nationally on the MeTV network, available to millions of subscribers across North America. New generations of fans are discovering the Castaways and the show’s namesake Gilligan, a role that made the show’s star Bob Denver one of the most famous television personalities of all time.
“I was married for nearly 30 years to the man the rest of the world knew as Gilligan,” recalls Dreama Denver, author of the touching memoir Gilligan’s Dreams; The Other Side of the Island. The book chronicles the behind-the-scenes story of the family life of one of television’s most popular and enduring stars, who sadly passed away in 2005 (the “Dreams” of “Gilligan’s Dreams” was Bob Denver’s nickname for Dreama).
Dreama co-starred with Bob in several theatre productions, a Gilligan’s Island TV movie, and in television pilot Scamps opposite Bob (and a young Joey Lawrence) for famed Gilligan’s Island and Brady Bunch producer Sherwood Schwartz. She left her rising show business career behind to care for the couple’s son Colin, who was born severely autistic. Bob Denver also soon left his lucrative television career to be a stay-at-home dad for Colin, walking away from the fame and fortune of Hollywood.
Dreama now oversees The Denver Foundation, helping the families of other special needs children. The energetic Ms. Denver also oversees http://www.bobdenver.com, where she keeps in touch with Bob’s loyal fans from around the globe. She also co-hosts a show on Little Buddy Radio, an FM and online non-profit radio station owned and operated by the Denver Foundation.
