The New York Post is reporting that the Sunderland’s had already inked a television deal based on their “daredevil kids” and allowed access to their home for filming four months ago while Abby Sunderland was on her voyage.
Additionally, on Geraldo last night, there were several guests including some on Abby’s team. The videographer stated that Abby had told him that her father had pushed her into the solo sail. Another on the team states that Laurence Sunderland had manually modified the boom of the sailboat. And another sailing expert who knows the family claims that he would never consider Laurence Sunderland to be an “expert” under any circumstances.
On Saturday, we opined that that there were shadows of Balloon Boy and the Heene’s in this story and it appears that we may have been right on the money.
