Relic Hunter Fans Fight A Desperate Battle
by Doc on Jun.18, 2003, under Television
Thomas writes “Relic Hunter fans have launched a valiant campaign to bring back the popular television series- Relic Hunter for another season. An online petition has been set up at the following address, and fans are urging people to get invovled.
Rumour has it that the show ended after lead star- Tia took time out to try other roles, and secure a family. Having recently married and since worked on the Disney blockbuster- Lilo and Stitch, fans are now hoping the show will be continued.
The syndicated show that made it to three seasons say a female Indiana Jones-esque character called Sydney Fox hunting for lost relics.
Recent talk suggested that the show may return as a televised movie based around the Xena chakram. This has yet to be officially confirmed.”

After being thrown into turmoil with the death of Douglas Adams almost two years ago, movement is seen in the big screen adaptation. Hammer & Tongs, the British commercial and video-directing and producing team will take the helm, on behalf of Roger Birnbaum and Disney, with Spyglass funding it and Karey Kirkpatrick, who has already done some work on the original Adams-penned script, will take over further writing. Adams will get an Executive Producer credit.
