Just days ago, Abby Sunderland announced her plan to write a book detailing her attempt to become the youngest person ever to sail around the world. Now there's word that Abby's story will also be coming to TV.

Prior to the worldwide publicity surrounding her rescue at sea, Abby's parents inked a deal for a family reality show called Adventures in Sunderland. The 16-year-old California teen hasn't filmed any scenes yet because shooting started in February, weeks after her January 23 departure.

What makes the Sunderlands so interesting and reality show worthy is that the family believes in encouraging their children's dreams -- no matter how extreme or unsafe they may be. In 2009, Abby's older brother Zac briefly held the record that Abby was hoping to achieve herself -- being the youngest person to sail around the world alone.
The company producing this new reality shows says that the family's "philosophy on building strong well rounded adults is to mentor their seven home schooled children into setting goals, creating a plan to reach those goals, and implementing them...allowing each of them to pursue their dreams of becoming world class adventurers."
