SciFi seeks reality as well


SciFi isn’t all about fiction. The cable network has given the green light to new investigative adventure series “RelicQuest” (working title), hosted by documentary filmmaker Bruce Burgess. The order is for six episodes, with production slated to begin this month.

“RelicQuest fits perfectly with the kind of investigative reality programming viewers enjoy on SciFi proven by the success of our original series ‘Destination Truth.’ It explores the mysticism and mythology of legendary artifacts rooted in real history and set in fascinating locales,” said Dave Howe, President, SciFi Channel.

RelicQuest is produced by Bluebook Films. It is executive produced by Bruce Burgess and Rene Barnett. Esther Reyes serves as co-executive producer.
