Following are the highlights:

While there, the socially crippled explorer encounters the Mole Men, who do not understand his foreign ways. Saul quickly finds himself entangled in an epic tale of political intrigue, geological discovery, romance, war and ancient evils. Saul of the Mole Men is executive produced by Peter Girardi, Craig Lewis and Tom Stern and is inspired by the work of Sid and Marty Krofft (Land Of The Lost), serialized sci-fi (Tom Baker-era Dr. Who) and the Planet of the Apes franchise.
