Lost Treasure Hunt

Scripting of three half-hour segments and detailed treatments for seven additional segments for an animated television series featuring teenage detectives who solve historical puzzles.

"Lost Treasure Hunt" is a series of half-hour television episodes that will explore topics in history and the humanities by using a unique combination of live-action documentary and animation. "Lost Treasure Hunt" brings together nationally recognized scholars and educators with a creative team from the major animation studios. Reacting to the need for age-appropriate humanities material for elementary-level children, this program uses animation to introduce children to historical subjects and explore multicultural topics. Expected for a wide television audience, "Lost Treasure Hunt" presents history in a style that is relevant to children, and will successfully compete for attention of young viewers confronted with many media choices.
