Man from Atlantis is a short-lived American science fiction/fantasy television series that ran for 13 episodes on the NBC network during the 1977-1978 season, following four television films that had aired earlier in 1977.
Ratings success by these movies led to the commissioning of a weekly series for the 1977-1978 season, but it was cancelled at the end of the first season due to a declining audience and high production costs.
Mark investigates the disappearance of three scuba divers, two of whom are ‘replaced’ by waterbourne aliens (Tiffany Bolling as Lioa / Dilly and Burr DeBenning as Xos / Chazz). The aliens assignment is to scout Earth and check its defense capabilities. They also give the impression that Mark may also be one of them, specially bred for Earth infiltration, but this is not specifically confirmed.
