Raleigh, NC, August 19, 1997 For the first time in more than thirty years, the classic Lost in Space property has been officially licensed through New Line Cinema, and Inkworks is first in space to introduce an inaugural trading card series, Lost in Space Archives: Premiere Edition. New Line Cinema recently announced the licensing deal with Inkworks, which also includes a trading
card series releasing in March 1998 which is based on the new, blockbuster Lost in Space feature film, set to premiere in April.
The Irwin Allen Lost in Space TV classic aired on CBS from 1965 through 1968 and became a worldwide syndicated hit, now airing
daily at 9 A.M. on the Sci-Fi Channel. Lost in Space Archives: Premiere Edition premium trading cards follow the adventures
(and often misadventures) of the Robinson family whose sabotaged spaceship is forced to wander the galaxy, bringing them into
contact with an assortment of ominous aliens as they attempt to return safely to earth.
Our Lost in Space Archives cards are a great tribute to this wonderful sci-fi classic, said Allan Caplan, Inkworks' President
and CEO. The show was part sci-fi drama, part campy romp! We strived to ensure the integrity of the show and it's characters by employing the services of known experts in television history and the science fiction genre, i.e., Lost in Space fanatics. I
think this premium card series will really knock the socks off of fans of the show and science fiction buffs as well.
Inkworks' Lost in Space Archives collector cards are now available and include 81 full-bleed, UV-coated cards based on the 1960's
TV classic. Geared toward baby boomers with a taste for nostalgia, the card series features full color images highlighted by rare photos and restored vintage images. The series was written by Gary Gerani, author of Fantastic Television, a well-known bible of fantasy / sci fi programs of the past including Lost in Space.
