Hmmmm. . . Jerry Bruckheimer and Danny Cannon are taking their new action adventure to CBS.
Variety says the untitled show will be about a wealthy benefactor funding a team of archaeologists to find artifacts. Iron Man writers, Matt Holloway and Art Marcum, are putting the pen to paper for the pilot and will get a production credit; Cannon is also set to direct the show if it gets picked up.

That's all there is. Never heard of this before. There haven't been a whole lot of strictly archaeological shows on. . .I can think of Relic Hunter with Tia Carerre (which makes it worthwhile in the first place, IMO), and of course, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles. A short-lived one called Veritas: The Quest, too, which had Arnold Vosloo from The Mummy films. There's probably more from pre-1970s, but they are unknown to me.
