NOTE:  The series was greenlit for a fourth season and production was ready to get underway. However, business problems, such as negotiations between the series original owners and the new owner hit a snag over price per episode for seasons 1 and 2, and the series never began production for the 2002/2003 season.

the Lost World

     The series stars... David Orth, Jennifer O'Dell, Peter McCauley, Rachel Blakely, and William Snow. 

     In 1919, Challenger (Peter McCauley) discovers the secret of a huge plateau in the middle of the Amazon - that dinosaurs are it's inhabitants!  When he presents his evidence to a historical society in London, he is laughed at and called a fraud.  Furious, and determined to prove he is right, he asks for volunteers to accompany him on an expedition into the jungle, on a perilous river journey, and to ultimately gain the top of the plateau by balloon.   An extremely skeptical member of the society, Professor Arthur Summerlee (Michael Sinelnikoff) is persuaded to go on the trip.  Lord John Roxton (Will Snow), a hunter and experienced adventurer enthusiastically offers to go, since bagging a dinosaur would be the ultimate challenge, and an American reporter, Ned Malone (David Orth, although Malone is played by Will DeVry in the pilot movie), also jumps at the chance at what could prove to be the story of the century.   The journey is almost over before it's begun when the historical society refuses to fund the trip, but then Marguerite mysteriously appears and offers to finance the whole thing, lock, stock and barrel.  She has remained as mysterious and her motives are not known. 

 

 

 

...

    They very quickly meet Veronica, Jennifer O'Dell, who invites them all to her home, a tree-house complex her parents had built.  It is not an exaggeration to say that without Veronica's help and knowledge, the group would be hard put to survive their involuntary incarceration in the Lost World.

103. More Than Human 
    
Roxton is out in the jungle looking for elements to fabricate a crossbow large enough to kill a T-Rex. His work is interrupted by the arrival of an actual T-Rex. To save his fellow explorers, he runs off to lead the giant beast away from the camp. It is almost upon him when the ground gives way and he disappears. The T-Rex chases and eats a deer. The rest of the party search for Roxton when he doesn't return. They too come to the point of his disappearance and are swallowed up by the earth, falling into a whirlpool of water. They all surface to find themselves in another part of the plateau. Here they discover that the intelligent life forms have descended from the dinosaurs. This world is almost Roman in origin.

104. Nectar 
     
Summerlee is out with Veronica, picking wild berries the size of melons. As he moves toward a large flower, the air is suddenly filled with a loud buzzing. Summerlee looks to the sky, thinking he has heard an airplane. It was a giant bee and it attacks. He is stung, the poison filling him quickly leaving him near death. The only hope for his survival lies in the heart of the hive itself. Roxton, Veronica and Malone must find a way to enter the hive and steal the nectar of the Queen Bee in order to save their dying friend. Marguerite and Challenger prepare for a pending apemen attack on the treehouse while Roxton and company find themselves sealed alive into a honeycomb deep with the hive.

105. Cave of Fear 
     Running low on gunpowder and facing death without it, Challenger, Malone and Veronica must traverse an ancient burial ground -- an area of deadly taboos and horrors -- in search of one of its components, sulphur. Warriors in black and white paint attack them. Challenger is taken away. At night the rest of the party sneak into the warrior village. They reach the main hut and crash through the door only to find Challenger sipping tea with a beautiful blond woman, Cassandra. She was the wife of an explorer who died on the Lost World twelve years earlier. She has since become the warriors queen. Cassandra explains that Challenger has committed a mortal sin in violating the burial grounds and must remain her prisoner. But, there is one way to free him, enter the cave of fear and return with her husband's bones so that she can bury him. Do that and Challenger can go free. They have two days.

106. Salvation
    
A young man stands tied to a post weeping, surrounded by tar-soaked tinder, begging for his life. He proclaims his innocence. This is the fortified encampment of The Christecs, a people lost in time who practice a hybrid of Conquistador Inquisition, Catholicism and Aztec paganism. The booming accusatory voice belongs to the High Priest, Tolmac, who stands before his people with a lighted torch in his hand preaching against evil and the devil. While exploring a lakefront, Challenger, Summerlee and Veronica hear the scream of a little girl drowning. They pull her from the water and Summerlee revives her. Tolmac sees this and labels Summerlee a devil. Veronica escapes, but Summerlee will be put on trial for heresy and witchcraft. Challenger will defend him and if found guilty, both men will be burned at the stake. It will be up to Roxton and the others to save their friends.

107. Blood Lust
     
Scouting the plateau, Roxton is bitten by a crazed young man and infected with a vampiric disease which elevates his hunting instincts to a blood thirsty new level. Mad with blood lust, Roxton attacks Marguerite and Challenger and runs off into the arms of Calista, a mysterious woman who understands his need for fresh blood to survive. As Marguerite and Challenger search for Roxton and clues to his sickness, they don't realize he is in turn hunting them. At the Treehouse, Niko, a native man, becomes smitten with Veronica's beauty and wishes to make her his bride. When Malone objects, the only honorable thing for Niko to do is to fight Malone for her, to the death.

108. Out of Time
     
Roxton, Marguerite and Malone are mapping a series of caves, trying to find one that leads off the plateau without much luck. Marguerite, all the while, has been gathering gleaming gemstones in her backpack. At least she will not go back empty handed. A fog begins to fill the air around them...dense...deep fog. From out of the mist forms take shape: cloaked figures and eerie rock formations, encircling a stone slab. They find themselves surrounded by Druid-like figures who swarm over Marguerite. Roxton tries desperately to protect her, but she is torn from his grasp. The two men are restrained and Marguerite is carried away and deposited on the stone slab. It turns out that Marguerite figures in an ancient prophecy and that her fate has finally caught up with her, here. What it means, she must discover for herself. Back near the treehouse, Veronica and Summerlee make a startling discovery in the jungle: a baby. As they take the child home, we discover they are being watched by inhuman eyes. An ape-woman, softly follows their footsteps.

109. Paradise Found
     
An old man struggles to run through the jungle, his eyes filled with fear. Pounding feet are chasing him down.

Veronica runs over to where the ancient one is lying. In his hand he holds a small gold locket with Veronica's picture in it. Sinta dies speaking her name. Veronica explains that Sinta was her parents guide eleven years ago. How did he get to be so old when he was only eighteen when Veronica last saw him? In the pocket of the old man they find a hand drawn map. Their journey leads the group to a hidden archway cut into a rock face. It is guarded by a giant horned lizard which they manage to move away and pass the archway. What they find is a world beyond their understanding.

They also discover that the beast guarding the doorway was not there to keep people out... but to keep them in.

A woman's scream leads Malone right into a booby trap and poison darts slam into his neck. By the time the other men arrive, Malone is dead. A Shaman, LENTO, claims he can heal him. As magic and medicine mix, the Shaman absorbs Malone's death. However, saving Malone overloads Lento's healing capability and drives him to madness. Lento is sentenced to death, but a regretful Malone helps him escape. Summerlee covers for Malone and is himself sentenced to die unless the other men can kill Lento--mad with murderous disease--in a jungle full of deathtraps.

Veronica escapes, but the others are trapped inside. Near death from suffocation, they are saved by GARZA, part of a group banished to the mine by a plague-like disease and led by a blind, ten year-old boy known as THE ORACLE.

To his surprise Roxton finds that Tarya's people live under the dominion of the war-like tribe the Hikari.
