The New People TV show was a 45 minute drama series on ABC about a group of about 40 idealistic U.S. college students whose plane crashed on a deserted island. They decided to build a new society there that would not make the same mistakes of their parents' generation. They soon found, however, that when you're the ones in charge, events often lead to not so idealistic results!

The New People Trivia:
The deserted island where "The New People" crashed was a U.S. atomic testing site that, luckily, had never been used. The island's name was "Bomano". Since the site had been developed by the U.S. government, it had food, weapons, buildings, and other supplies that "The New People" could use.
If you watch the second episode of the series, "Charlie's Angels" titled, "The Mexican Connection", you'll see that the film of the New People's plane crashing was re-used on that episode!
In addition to his many other acting credits, Peter Ratray who portrayed George Potter on The New People went on to starring roles on three soap operas! They were "Another World", "Search for Tomorrow", and "Ryan's Hope".
