With Survivor a big hit, Gilligan’s Island creator Sherwood Schwartz has seen renewed interest in his castaway tale of yore (ABC is planning a behind-the-scenes Gilligan flick). But the TV veteran says he’s not neglecting his other baby, The Brady Bunch. EW has learned Nick at Nite is developing a two-hour pilot for Another Brady Bunch. The twist? The Bradys are an interracial family. Schwartz is also pitching several other updates, including — we kid you not — The Brady Bunch in the White House (featuring President Mike Brady) and The Brady Bunch vs. the Mob, in which the fab family is on the run from the Altos, a Sopranos-type clan. (We can hear Marcia now: ”Oh, my kneecaps!”) Placed in the Witness Protection Program, the Bradys ”move to four different addresses, each time getting different names,” Schwartz says. ”Poor little Cindy doesn’t know what name to answer to when they call on her in school.”
