CBS will debute new Mark Burnett reality show Pirate Master May 31.

The show is a combination of Burnett's Survivor and Pirates of the Caribbean, with 16 people plucked from their comfort zone, as Burnett puts it, dressed in period costume, and sent off in a "pirate" ship to search of buried treasure totalling $1 million.

The show is set on and around the Caribbean island of Dominica. There will be challenges and vote-offs, with money doled out on each show and the big winner claiming $500,000.

Sure, there's a total of $1 million at stake hidden around the Caribbean island of Dominica, but the daunting physical demands make Survivor's challenge look wimpy. "It's a really interesting diverse cast," says Burnett. "Everybody's a good athlete, but what they've learned is being a great pirate, you have to be really smart. When you're exhausted and you're trudging through a jungle, jumping off waterfalls or swimming up canyon lakes, you still have to think about what the pirate clues are.
