The Lost World is a syndicated tv series (meaning it may come on at a weird time--usually. It comes on here in Virginia at different times on Fox on saturdays, but sometimes has been known to be shown in the middle of the night!! One really has to check the listings a lot to locate syndicated shows and usually you have to set your VCR to tape the show, since the time it comes on can be weird.)
Yes, it's based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's book, but losely. It's has a lot of fantasy in it (like lizard men and Amazon women and people coming through a time warp from the future!) but I have to confess to being a fan of the show. With all these fantastic stories, the main characters play it serious, and that makes the show work.
The show is, in fact, produced by George Lucas, I think, if memory serves me correctly. (You came close with Steven Spilbirg!)
My favorite character on the show is the lady called Margareet. She's a female Indiana Jones! But somewhat selfish, at times. She's tuff and makes men respect her.
Let me know if you find it on TV and your opinion of it. It's not necessarily a cable show (since I don't get cable and watch it on Fox). Check your listings.
