MeTV Network is set to take a three-hour tour of the late Dawn Wells‘ most memorable episodes of Gilligan’s Island.
The classic television network will celebrate its former brand ambassador with a presentation of “Best of MaryAnn” episodes, to air this Sunday, Jan. 10 from 2 to 5 pm ET. The titles on tap include “How to Be a Hero,” “Don’t Bug the Mosquitoes,” “The Second Ginger Grant” (truly a classic), “The Matchmaker,” “The Postman Cometh” and “Beauty Is as Beauty Does”.
Dawn Wells was “truly America’s sweetheart” and “a very special friend to the MeTV Network as our first official celebrity marketing ambassador,” Weigel Broadcasting vice chairman Neal Sabin said in a statement. “We will miss her, but her work on Gilligan’s Island will live forever.”
