Relic Hunter was a 60 minute action adventure series that aired in syndication. It was about a female University Professor who traveled the world in search of ancient artifacts. Her goal was to return the arifacts to people they'd been stolen from or to ancestors of the original owners. Along the way, she used her martial arts skills to battle other relic hunters who were seeking the same object for personal enrichment.

Relic Hunter Trivia
Relic Hunter was inspired by the huge success of Tomb Raider (the video game).
It might be hard to believe when you consider the different settings from all over the world you've seen on Relic Hunter, but nearly all of those scenes were filmed in the metropolitan Toronto, Canada area!
Tia Carrere's ancestry is Chinese, Filipino, and Spanish. Her birth name was Althea but her little sister could not pronounce it. The name always came out as "Tia" and it stuck. Besides her acting career, Tia has worked as a model and a singer. She appeared on the series, "Star Search", in 1985 but got knocked out of the competition in her first round. She was once offered a role on the series, "Baywatch", but turned it down so she could be in the 1992 movie, "Wayne's World". In that film, she sang several songs, including the main soundtrack! That same year, she was included by People Magazine on their list of the "50 Most Beautiful People in the World"! Then, she was featured in the January 2003 copy of Playboy Magazine! As of 2006, Tia is still very busy with movie roles and just recently appeared on the reality series, "Dancing With The Stars".
