Santa Monica, CA — Lucy Lawless has made headlines lately speaking to rumors of a possible re-boot of her iconic role, XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS, at struggling NBC.
Lawless originated the role more than 15 years ago as a guest-star on THE ADVENTURES OF HERCULES and was subsequently rewarded with her own spin-off. Both series were created by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and John Schulian. Both were successful shows in syndication, and both properties are owned by NBC/Universal.
Full disclosure: I was/am a fan of both series, but it was Xena that really captured my attention and viewer loyalty. The characters were better. The stories were more engaging and emotional. They even did a musical episode that furthered the storyline (which would inspire many other series like Buffy to do their own).
Do I want NBC to re-boot Xena? Sure.
