Originally the producers had planned to make the show "Amazon High", which has a young woman (Played by Monica McSwain) who went back in time, but that version of the show didn't make it beyond the pilot, although the footage was later recycled for the "Xena" episode "Lifebood". The producers then twisted the original concept and came up with "Cleopatra 2525".
