ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO- Two U.S. Senators are stars of a new reality TV show called "Rival Survival" and spent a week together on a remote island for a week.

They are from opposite sides of the political aisle.

New Mexico Democrat Martin Heinrich and Arizona Republican Jeff Flake say they hope it inspires their colleagues in Washington to work together.

It's scheduled to air October 29 on Discovery.

It was filmed during the August break for Congress on the island of Eru in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific.

Discovery says the senators came up with the idea to show other members of Congress you have to work together to survive.
