Exclusive: I have learned that Syfy UK has acquired the UK broadcast rights to reality adventure series Legend Quest. I’m also being told that Syfy UK will premiere the series on Monday April 23rd at 8pm.
Legend Quest follows Ashley Cowie, an archaeological explorer and expert in ancient symbols, as he travels the world in search of some of history’s greatest and most mysterious artifacts. From King Arthur’s famous sword Excalibur to the coveted Holy Grail, all of the elusive items are believed to hold hidden powers and mystical significance for ancient and modern cultures. With Indiana Jones-type adventure and Da Vinci Code-style puzzle solving Cowie and his team leave no stone unturned as they hack through dense jungles, squeeze through tiny caves and trek through forbidding deserts to find their next clue.
The series first season runs six episodes and was originally aired in the United States on Syfy last summer. It is currently unknown if the series will be renewed for a second season.
