Title: Move Over, Xena
By:


    Move over, Xena

    From the folks who brought you Xena: Warrior Princess comes  Cleopatra
 2525,  a new syndicated sci-fi action series about an evil band of humanoids
who have conquered Earth. The planet's only hope? Three hot, tough female
renegades, of course. There's Hel, who receives a mysterious voice through an
implant in her jaw; Sarge, her warrior sidekick; and Cleopatra, an exotic dancer
who comes out of a cryogenically frozen state centuries after lapsing into a
coma during plastic surgery. Although the gals were no doubt created for male
viewers, some lesbians are intrigued. "I hope there's one like Kate Jackson,"
says comic Elvira Kurt. "Someone plucky and androgynous." But Patrick Moran, the
openly gay president of television for Renaissance Pictures, the show's
production company, says this is no Charlie's Angels. "The women kick a lot more
ass on our show," says Moran. "And they're clad completely in midriff-exposing
fibers."
