Necker Island has white sands, turquoise sea and girls in bikinis serving drinks. We all know that. What we may not know is that Sir Richard Branson has a great talent for solving the problems of our most-loved and messed-up celebrities while they're enjoying some well-deserved island luxury. But does Sir Richard have a more important masterplan - a dark secret involving interplanetary travel?

From the creators of The Windsors, this pilot draws heavily on a rich heritage of island-set TV shows, from Fantasy Island to Lost to Thunderbirds.
