Celebrating Dawn Wells: Next on TVC

Sunday, January 10th, 2021

Please join us this weekend on TV CONFIDENTIAL for a special two-hour tribute to Dawn Wells, airing Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio,

This week’s program will be dedicated to the life and career of Dawn Wells, the iconic actress, author, and producer who passed away on Wednesday, Dec. 30 at age eighty-two. Beloved to three generations of TV viewers around the world as Mary Ann Summers on Gilligan’s Island, Dawn left her mark on many other aspects of the entertainment industry before and after Gilligan, including more than sixty stage credits (ranging from Noel Coward and Neil Simon to Steel Magnolias, The Vagina Monologues, and The Owl and the Pussycat); her legendary boot camps in Idaho, which taught thousands of actors and crew members many important essentials about the “business” of show business; and her starring role, opposite Michael Dante, in the classic western Winterhawk. Just as important, by all accounts she was a kind and generous soul who graced the presence of everyone who came into her orbit.

Our show this week will include remembrances from Geoffrey Mark, Emmy Award-winning and Grammy Award-nominated writer/producer, and Bill Funt, son of Candid Camera creator Allen Funt, and a longtime friend of Sherwood Schwartz and the family members of many Gilligan’s Island cast members. Both Geoff and Bill were close personal friends with Dawn Wells for many years.

We will also play highlights from a conversation with Dawn Wells that originally aired on TV Confidential in July 2017. Of Dawn’s three appearances on our program, this one is my personal favorite. Please join us.
