NZ Listener Magazine had a brief mention of Xena which is shown on cable tv in New Zealand and said "it’s fair to say that our local TV creatives owe a lot to producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi..."
MONDAY MARCH 6
Xena: Warrior Princess (The Zone, Sky 009, 4.10pm weekdays). We declare girl-power week. The spin-off that became bigger than its progenitor ( Hercules: The Legendary Journeys); made Lucy Lawless a hero to girls and women everywhere; and prepared a generation of Kiwi crew for Oscar glory on The Lord of the Rings.
The West Auckland television production industry may have waxed and waned since Xena’s last episode in 2001, but it’s fair to say that our local TV creatives owe a lot to producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi.
