Here's the true story behind the ABC Hit Lost:
In 1964, a dramatic TV series called "Lost on Gilligan's Island" was filmed. Since it was too dark for a 1960s audience, the series was retooled as a slapstick comedy called "Gilligan's Island."
Four decades later, the ABC network remade "Lost on Gilligan's Island," this time remaining true to the original dramatic vision. The 2004 remake was titled simply "Lost."
