Article about Legends and Nick game show pilots
« on: September 01, 2010, 04:12:33 PM »
So today, I've been going through ProQuest for more articles on Legends to expand the Wikipedia article, and I think I found a gem.  The quote below comes from an article in the Orlando Business Journal in February 1996:

Quote
Among the production definites Nickelodeon will pursue in 1996 are more episodes of Gullah Gullah Island, Allegra's Window and All That.  Game shows Global GUTS and Legends of the Hidden Temple are not sure bets, Fishman says, because the network is looking at three new game show pilots just out of production at the Orlando facility that may replace the older shows.  The pilots include shows based on outdoor games, a "GUTS-extension kind of show" that "morphs two sports into one" and a technology-based scavenger hunt, Fishman says.


(Cindy Barth, "New GM to Keep Nick 'On Course'", Orlando Business Journal, February 23, 1996)

What do you think?  I haven't been able to find any information on the pilots Nickelodeon was considering.
