The series was inspired by the success of the video game Tomb Raider (1996).

Despite the series' worldwide locales, the production rarely left Metropolitan Toronto.

The episode entitled "Lost Contact" (#2.10) is dedicated to the memory of stuntman Chris Lamon, who died in an accident on the set of the film Exit Wounds (2001).

Karen Petrushky is married to a Chinese man and so is Tanja Reichert in real life to Matthew See.
