Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Three intrepid archeologists head into Pueblo country in New Mexico in search of Mankind's origins. The group hopes to locate an ancient medallion, which may or may not prove that the Earth was once a stopping-off point for extraterrestrial beings. But just finding the medallion turns out to be the easy part; complicating matters is a fierce struggle over possession of the artifact, with several would-be possessors indicating that they're willing to kill to get what they want. Filmed on location in Taos, New Mexico as the pilot for a proposed (but unsold) weekly series, Search for the Gods made its ABC network bow on March 9, 1975--where it was handily trounced in the ratings by a competing Barbra Streisand special.
