THE CASTAWAYS ARE FORCED TO MAKE MOVES IN ORDER TO SURVIVE ON ABC'S 'CASTAWAYS'

"The Search" - After a fight divides a camp, starvation forces two Castaways to search for resources that may still exist on the islands. Two Castaways approach their breaking point, unsure of whether or not they can continue, on "Castaways," MONDAY, SEPT. 17 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

The only way to leave the remote islands is to persevere long enough to be rescued or to quit. As dramatic situations unfold on an expanse of islands in the South Pacific, the series flashes back to the real lives of each participant in documentary fashion, demonstrating haunting parallels to the lives they left behind.

"Castaways" is produced by Nomad Entertainment which specializes in unscripted television and documentary features. Emmy(R)-nominated producer Grant Kahler serves as showrunner. Kahler's credits include serving as creator and executive producer of Discovery Channel's "Alaska: The Last Frontier" and History's "Madhouse," as well as serving as executive producer of the hit competition series "Alone" and "The Selection" for History.

"Castaways" is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format, with 5.1-channel surround sound. A TV parental guideline will be assigned to this program at a later date.
