Creator/{{Universal}}'s equivalent of Creator/{{PTEN}}, a UsefulNotes/{{syndication}} package composed initially of backdoor pilot movies (being almost a blend of a package and a WheelProgram early on). For most of its existence, the Action Pack was a two-hour block consisting of ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' and ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess''. It was more successful than PTEN (if only barely), but it too folded in 2001 after ''Xena'' came to an end.

Shows and/or telemovies which were syndicated under the Action Pack branding included:

* ''[=TekWar=]'' (based off [[Creator/WilliamShatner William Shatner's]] line of novels; eventually jumped to Universal's Creator/USANetwork)
* ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys''
* ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess''
* ''Series/KnightRider 2010'' - with ''Knight Rider'' SET IN THE FUTURE!
* ''Series/TeamKnightRider'' - another attempt to bring it back, but this time with more vehicles
* ''Series/{{Cleopatra 2525}}''[=/=]''Series/JackOfAllTrades'' (initially bundled as two half-hours, then the latter was cancelled and the former expanded to an hour)
* ''Vanishing Son'' (which was replaced by ''Xena'')
* ''Bandit'' (based on the ''Film/SmokeyAndTheBandit'' film series)
* ''Midnight Run'' (based on [[Film/MidnightRun the film]] of the same name)
* ''The Adventures Of Captain Zoom In Outer Space''

You could consider Universal's animated series ''WesternAnimation/{{Exosquad}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/MonsterForce'' as being related to the Action Pack, but not part of it, since they aired right around the time the Pack came to TV and were (allegedly) broadcast together as the ''Universal Action Hour''. Also related was a previous attempt at an ad-hoc network from Universal, the ''Hollywood Premiere Network'' that aired in the 1990-91 season, which featured ''Series/SheWolfOfLondon'', ''Shades of LA'' (about a detective who can see spirits trapped in limbo), and ''They Came from Outer Space'' (a sitcom about two alien fratboys traveling through America); that effort didn't last.
