Adventures in Sunderland Comes to TV

A southland film production company says it plans to create a reality TV show based on the family of Abby Sunderland, the 16-year-old sailor rescued from the Indian Ocean last week while trying to sail around the world alone. Magnetic Entertainment says Adventures in Sunderland will focus on how the young sailor's parents have encouraged her and her six siblings to become world-class adventurers.

Abby Sunderland's family says they talked about a reality show but that it's not currently in the works.
