The New Adventures of Robin Hood is an American television series that premiered on January 13, 1997 on TNT. The show was based on the legend of Robin Hood, the English folk hero, and was filmed in Vilnius, Lithuania. It was produced and distributed by Dune Productions, M6, and Warner Bros. International. The tone of the series resembled its contemporaries Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess. The premiere episode aired immediately after an episode of WCW Monday Nitro. A unique promotional effort took place between the two, with the Nitro main event—Hulk Hogan vs The Giant—not beginning until two minutes before the show ended, then continuing and being broadcast during portions of commercial breaks.
