The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne | 2000
Drama series about the fictional adventures of 19th century science-fiction writer Jules Verne. The series proposes that the writer did not invent his famous science-fiction classics, but rather experienced them first-hand. Unfortunately, the "League of Darkness" wants to harness Verne's ideas and inventions for its own evil ends. Verne's friend Phileas Fogg, a Victorian-era "James Bond," aids Verne in thwarting the evil plans of the League with the help of his cousin Rebecca Fogg and his technically-adept valet, Passepartout.
