Ben Hurst was a writer for a number of TV series, including Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Underground. He is noted for becoming involved with the Sonic community. Hurst participated in interviews for Sonic Amateur Games Expo in 2005 and 2006.
Hurst passed away in mid-2010 due to complications with diabetes.
SatAM was cancelled after its second season. However, Hurst had outlined a plot for a third season, and hoped to one day continue the TV series' story.
|“||It is my dream to bring the story lines which were left unfinished in the second season to their final conclusion - and I'm working now to bring that to pass - though it is an uphill road and I'm afraid my chances of success are slim. Nonetheless, I'm going to give it my best shot. Believe me, I want to see this as much as all of those here who share the love of Satam Sonic.||„|
