Sounds familiar to me too, man.

From a bit on Cinescape this morning--

"Writer Anthony Spinner is suing ABC and Touchstone Television over the series LOST for allegedly taking his concept for a TV show that he worked on for Sid and Marty Krofft Productions."

"Spinner claims he was hired in 1977 to write, develop and produce a show about a group of airplane crash survivors who struggle to survive in a jungle where they encounter strange creatures and dangerous characters (emphasis mine).

"He is seeking 'unspecified damages for claims including breach of contract and fraud.'"

Hurm. I wonder if this guy realizes that if you substitute "shipwreck" for "airplane crash", that was the plot of every episode of Gilligan's Island.
