The former Baywatch star suffered serious cuts and bruises to her face and body in a hiking fall near Mount Ararat at the weekend (11-12Aug12) during an expedition to find the biblical treasure.
The terrifying accident forced her to return to her U.S. home on Tuesday night (14Aug12), but D'Errico insists the trip was eye-opening and she will be heading back to Turkey in the near future to continue her epic quest.
She tells TMZ.com, "I'm just glad to be home. I found a lot of information... I've just always wanted to climb Mount Ararat and search for Noah's Ark... and I know everybody thinks it's funny and it's a big joke and people don't believe in it... but I do... and I've wanted to do it ever since I was a kid."
The producer passed away unexpectedly in his home near Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, on Monday (31Jan11). The cause of death has not been specified.
Sellier is best known for creating the character Grizzly Adams, a man accused of murder who befriends a bear while on the run from bounty hunters.
Adams, who was inspired by an actual 19th century trapper, was played by actor Dan Haggerty in the 1974 film The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams and the subsequent TV series of the same name.
Sellier also wrote and produced religious-based TV movies and documentaries, including In Search of Noah's Ark and Mark Twain's America.
He received an Emmy nomination in 1980 for TV movie The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
The foursome, who rose to fame as Los Angeles County lifeguards in the '90s series, will co-star in Back to the Bay, a docu-comedy about the actress' new careers.
The series will chronicle Eggert's efforts as she works on exercise DVDs and raises her 12-year-old daughter, while Bingham is setting up her own dating service.
Nolin will also be followed as she promotes her a book about postpartum depression, having just given birth to her third child, while D'Errico is said to be "a conspiracy theorist" whose goal is to climb Turkey's Mount Ararat and search for Noah's Ark.
Executive producer Scott Stone tells trade paper Daily Variety, "These amazing women have all embraced the nostalgia of the 'Baywatch' phenomenon and are ready to show us all how to have a blast again."
An air date for Back to the Bay has yet to be set.
While many people view the Bible as a story or a myth, others are inclined to take the sacred texts as true history. The program tells the story of those who have sought to find a giant boat that they believe carried Noah, his family and the animals two by two. The program includes first-hand accounts of searchers who have been atop Mt. Ararat; rare black and white footage from the first searcher to film a discovery on Mt. Ararat; and the perspective of biblical scholars, an archaeologist and editor of the Oxford Encyclopedia of Archaeology.
