Zaido is a GMA Network fantaserye about the descendants of Metal Hero, Uchuu Keiji Shaider (which is a spinoff sequel to the famous Uchuu Keiji Trilogy). Initially, the network was supposed to do a remake of the Japanese series Uchuu Keiji Shaider, but Toei rejected the script that they submitted. Toei instead, permitted them to do a new version of the Metal Hero series featuring the descendants of Shaider. [1] In fact, in the teasers that are currently aired for the show, the name of Toei is depicted in the show's title card which signifies Toei's blessing for the show.
