Rob Mention about Legend of the Seeker

From Post Gazette Now

WPCW -- In the late '80s and early '90s, riding the wave created by the success of "Star Trek: The Next Generation," first-run syndicated dramas were all the rage. But in recent years there have been few if any.

That changes this fall with "Legend of the Seeker" (5 and 11:30 p.m. Saturdays, premiering Nov. 1). This scripted drama is from executive producer Rob Tapert, who knows a thing or two about successful syndicated shows from his years running "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and "Xena: Warrior Princess." Filmed in New Zealand (like "Hercules" and "Xena"), this one-hour show is based on Terry Goodkind's book "Wizard's First Rule" and the epic fantasy series "The Sword of Truth." "Legend" follows the travels of woodsman Richard Cypher (Craig Horner) as he discovers his magical powers and tries to stop an evil tyrant from world domination.
