Forthcoming mobile-first, short-form streaming platform Quibi has revealed that it is reviving and reimagining the ’90s action-adventure competition series, Legends of the Hidden Temple.
The series was originally broadcast from 1993 to 1999 on Nickelodeon and saw six teams of two children in head-to-head competition as they attempted to retrieve one of the historical artifacts in the “temple” by completing a series of physical challenges and correctly answering history-, mythology-, and geography-based trivia.
While the revitalized series will incorporate a number of elements from the original series, including the Moat Crossing, Olmec and the Temple Run, the modern-day program will be scaled up with tougher challenges and bigger prizes that will appeal to an older, millennial demographic. In addition, the entire set will be taken out of the studio and placed in a jungle.
The remade Legends of the Hidden Temple will be produced by Nickelodeon and Stone & Company Entertainment, as was the original series. It will be executive produced by Scott A. Stone. It was created by David G. Stanley, Scott A. Stone and Stephen R. Brown.
“Bringing back Legends for Quibi is a dream come true,” said Stone in a statement. “I have been so lucky to be part of this defining millennial show, and now there is a defining millennial platform to go with it. I couldn’t be more excited.”
Quibi will launch April 6, 2020 in the U.S.
