CAMERON DADDO TO HOST "PIRATE MASTER," THE NEW REALITY-BASED SERIES CREATED BY EMMY AWARD-WINNING PRODUCER MARK BURNETT, PREMIERING THURSDAY, MAY 31, ON CBS

Australian actor Cameron Daddo will host PIRATE MASTER, the new reality-based series created by Emmy Award-winning producer Mark Burnett, premiering Thursday, May 31 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

PIRATE MASTER will send 16 modern-day pirates on a high seas adventure where they will live as buccaneers and travel around the Caribbean island of Dominica in search of hidden treasure that will total $1 million. Over the course of 33 days, these pirates will live aboard a massive 179 foot, square-rigged barque which carries 12,500 square feet of sail.

Each week, the pirates will embark on extraordinary expeditions where they will decipher clues along the way in search of missing treasure. Gold coins -- real money which the pirates may take with them beyond the show -- will be awarded after each expedition, but only to some. The gold will play a key role as pirates strike deals with each other or plead for long-term security. In addition to claiming the lion's share of the week's riches, one pirate will become the captain of the ship and will assign roles and chores to the remaining crew members, setting the tone for either law and order or betrayal and sabotage, which could lead to mutiny by the crew.

Each episode will conclude on the ship at Pirate's Court, a lively gathering of public speaking and judgment where one individual will be eliminated and "cut adrift." In the end, one will be the first to find the largest booty, worth $500,000, and claim the title of "Pirate Master."

In each episode, Daddo will distribute clues at the start of the expeditions and preside over the Pirate's Court.

Daddo's Australian television credits include "Perfect Match," "The Heroes," "Witch Hunt," "Bony," "Golden Fiddles," and "Tracks Of Glory." His U.S. television credits include "Between Love And Hate," "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles," "Models, Inc.," "FX: The Series," "Hope Island" and guest-starring roles in CBS's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and CSI: MIAMI, along with "West Wing," "Boston Legal" and "Monk." He also appeared in the television movies "The Incredible Mrs. Ritchie" and "Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story."

Among his feature film credits, Daddo appeared in "Big Mamas House 2," "Anthrax," "Zebra Lounge," "Drive Time Murders" and "Inland Empire." His latest film projects include "Hacia La Oscuridad ("Towards Darkness"), which will be featured at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival, and the upcoming films "Drifter" and "Passengers."

Daddo is also a musician. He played in the bands The Nearly Smooth Guys and Baby James. His solo debut album, "A Long Goodbye," was released in 1992 and featured Keith Urban on back-up vocals and guitars. His latest music project is titled daddo, as well as his original one man musical/play, "House Devil, Street Angel."

PIRATE MASTER is produced by Mark Burnett Productions. Mark Burnett and Lisa Hennessy are the executive producers. Eden Gaha and Page Feldman are the co-executive producers.
