SCI FI GREENLIGHTS INVESTIGATIVE ADVENTURE SERIES 'RELICQUEST'

Hosted by Documentary Filmmaker Bruce Burgess

NEW YORK, NY -- September 29, 2008 -- SCI FI Channel has greenlit production on the new investigative adventure series RelicQuest (working title), hosted by documentary filmmaker Bruce Burgess, it was announced today by Dave Howe, President, SCI FI Channel. With a 6-episode commitment and production slated to begin in October, the one-hour show will premiere in early '09.

RelicQuest is an action and adventure series that travels the globe in search of some of history's greatest relics and artifacts. British filmmaker Bruce Burgess guides the viewer in a first-hand exploration down mysterious roads to uncover objects fabled to hold hidden powers and mystical significance for both ancient and modern cultures. Utilizing worldwide contacts and exclusive access to restricted sites, RelicQuest promises to be the action-packed thrill ride through the world's most interesting sites, as you have never seen them.

"'RelicQuest' fits perfectly with the kind of investigative reality programming viewers enjoy on SCI FI proven by the success of our original series 'Destination Truth'," said Dave Howe. "It explores the mysticism and mythology of legendary artifacts rooted in real history and set in fascinating locales."

"I've always had a passion for tackling tough subjects and investigating mysteries, and I have spent my career traveling the globe tracking down new evidence. RelicQuest will be a professor-free zone. Instead we'll be talking to the locals, the people on the ground at these ancient sites�the smugglers, the traders, the tomb raiders, and the antiquities dealers," says Bruce Burgess.

Traveling to Cairo, Egypt, Burgess attempts to solve the riddle of who Moses really was and to unravel the true story of what happened on Mount Sinai. Burgess will also go to the ruins of Montsegur Castle, to investigate the Holy Grail of the Cathars, a small cup that was said to have enormous healing and spiritual powers. Other journeys will take viewers to Amman, Jordan on the trail of the Armageddon Priscillian Codex, a sought-after document said to be a prophecy for the alleged "end times."

RelicQuest is produced by Bluebook Films for SCI FI. It is executive produced by Bruce Burgess and Rene Barnett. Esther Reyes serves as co-executive producer. SCI FI Channel is a television network where "what if" is what's on. SCI FI fuels the imagination of viewers with original series and events, blockbuster movies and classic science fiction and fantasy programming, as well as a dynamic Web site (www.scifi.com ) and magazine.
