[show]M.A.N.T.I.S. (1994) (TV), the highly-watched TV movie on which this series was based, featured a predominately African-American cast and racism was a major issue in the story. Fox executives thought that the racial focus of the movie was "too grim and too realistic". Except for Carl Lumbly, the African-American actors from the movie were replaced in this series. Lumbly, Gina Torres, and Christopher M. Brown stated in interviews that they were very disappointed that the tone of the series was changed.
- The M.A.N.T.I.S. writers offices on the Universal lot were demolished during the production of the series in order to make space for the "Jurassic Park" ride.
- Carl Lumbly is the only cast member to feature in both the pilot and series.
