Rob Tapert Interview: The “Fanboy” Behind “Legend of the Seeker” and “Xena”

It’s hard not to be impressed by Rob Tapert. Along with his creative partners Sam Raimi and Joshua Donen, the man is responsible for some of the best, and most influential fantasy television of all time: first, Xena: Warrior Princess, which starred his wife Lucy Lawless, and now Legend of the Seeker, a surprisingly watchable adaptation of the Terry Goodkind’s The Sword of Truth novels.

As of this posting, Legend of the Seeker has still not officially been picked up for a second season (although things look very good), but that hasn’t stopped Tapert from micro-analyzing everything about the first season and gearing up for an even better second one.
