    Hope Island, set in a small fishing village in the Pacific Northwest, is a quirky series about the day-to-day lives of a few islanders, centering on the village's new pastor, Daniel Cooper. Perhaps the main theme of the show is community... or redemption... or just friendship. Not sure which. The island setting is beautiful and quaint. The characters are warm, human, caring, and realistically wierd. The first episode introduces Daniel Cooper as "the new minister" of an abandoned church. Slowly, through the course of the series, friendships form and a community grows. The episode themes are both funny and heart-warming.moreless

    The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones

    Follow
    The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones is the ABC television series that shows the childhood of the legendary adventurer Indiana Jones. Originally airing as The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, the show was executive produced by George Lucas, and starred Sean Patrick Flanery and Corey Carrier as the young versions of the title character. Indy's adventures were fun for viewers but also educational, with appearances from historical figures and many important events throughout history. The episodes usually begin with the elderly Indiana Jones (George Hall) in present day, telling stories of his adventures, leading to flashbacks of the 10 year old Indy (Carrier) and the teenage version (Flanery). Young Indiana came across figures like Leo Tolstoy, Howard Carter, and John Ford, traveling all over the world to places like Egypt, India, China and more. After three seasons the series came to an end, but four made-for-TV films were made to continue the series, and the original series were re-edited into 22 TV films in 1999, as The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones.moreless

    NBC (ended 1998)
    "This powerful one-hour family drama from executive producer John Wells (ER) and creator/supervising producer Matthew McNair Carnahan (Black Circle Boys) centers on the McCallisters, a working-class Irish-Catholic family from New York's Hell's Kitchen, whose five young-adult siblings lead contrasting lives and whose fierce loyalties are often pushed to the limit." "Capturing the compelling, poignant reality of familial relationships, the series stars Tate Donovan, Charlotte Ross, Justin Louis, Sam Trammell, Bonnie Root, Kim Raver, John Spencer and Jill Clayburgh." "Bobby (Justin Louis, Public Morals) an intense, ambitious police detective who works the streets of Hell's Kitchen, believes that his brother Liam (Tony Award nominee Sam Trammell, Ah Wilderness), an emerging union leader, works for a boss tied to organized crime. Also, to Bobby's dismay, his wife Clarissa (Kim Raver, Central Park West) maintains a suspiciously close relationship with Liam. Kevin McCallister (Tate Donovan, Warner Bros.' Friends and Hercules), a young parish priest, and the rest of the family concern themselves with the wild, self-destructive behavior of the youngest of the clan, Amanda (Bonnie Root, Home Invasion). Successful stockbroker and older sister Fiona's (Charlotte Ross, Days of Our Lives) long-term affair with her married boss wreaks havoc on her self-esteem. A sixth sibling [Mikey] died under mysterious circumstances years ago." "The tightly knit clan gathers weekly at the home of their parents, Eileen and Simon McCallister, for Sunday dinner -- putting aside conflicts and focusing on the unwavering love that's at the core of this family." (Warner Bros. press release) After four years of giving them huge audiences from that hospital show he helped bring to the small screen, NBC wanted John Wells to give them another rambling ensemble drama along the same lines -- and the same ratings. Wells latched on to a script from indie filmmaker Matthew McNair Carnahan, and chose this as his next project, claiming at the time that it was as different from ER as night and day. Wells also acknowledged that sudsy family dramas like Trinity have hardly ever been instant hits in the past -- as ER was and as NBC wanted -- and that, as a slow-building show, it needed a patient network who would give it time to develop an audience. Seems he momentarily forgot what network he sold it to. Trinity redefined slow-building (actually, it redefined reverse-building), and was yanked off the schedule at the beginning of November sweeps, three weeks after its belated premiere, two weeks after NBC's programming division underwent management changes. NBC stated they would make an announcement on its future by Christmas, but the coffin was sealed pretty much shut when reruns of Law & Order (incidentally, a slow-building show they somehow did manage to let grow) pulled bigger numbers. NBC never did make that announcement, and Warner Bros. stopped production four episodes early. The following season, John Wells took John Spencer, Kim Raver, Skipp Sudduth, Bobby Cannavale and a lot of the production crew with him -- and proved he wasn't a one-hit wonder. Right around the time Trinity dropped off the face of prime time, the programming chief who developed it, Warren Littlefield, was sent on his merry way. In January, 1999, a Littlefield-free NBC saw Trinity's Friday vacancy filled with a sudsy family drama called Providence. Which gave...well, you all know what came of that.

    CTV (ended 1994)
    E.N.G. (an abbreviation which means Electronic News Gathering) was a primetime Canadian drama that dealt with the personal lives of a group of newscasters and staff in the newsroom of a fictitious Toronto news station. Ann Hildebrandt was the executive producer of the news at station CTLS-TV 10; and she was having a secret affair with Jake Antonelli, the young hotshot cameraman. Her world was rocked with the arrival of Mike Fennell, the new News Director who had eyes for ratings. Their opinions clashed, but they only had the best interests of the station and their co-workers in mind. Among the other characters in CTLS' newsroom were Kyle Copeland, the station manager; Jane Oliver and (age-conscious) Seth Miller were the anchors; Bruce Foreman was a schemer; Marge Atherton was the motherly editor and source of strength for all; JC was an assignment editor; and Dan Watson was an insensitive, smarmy reporter. Some of the episodes were shown on Lifetime Cable network from 1989-1990. The show ran for a couple more years in Canada, until it was cancelled. The show was produced by Alliance Communications Corporation, CTV and Téléfilm Canada.

    Family Affairs

    Follow
    Channel Five (ended 2005)
    On its launch night (30th March 1997), Channel 5 broadcast the first episode of its original soap opera: Family Affairs. The series was Britain's first 5-days-a-week soap and has been broadcast every weekday since its launch. Family Affairs: The Hart Years (From Pilot to Episode 480) The show followed the lives of the Hart family from Charnham, Kent, story lines surrounded Chris, Annie and their children Duncan, Holly, Melanie and Jamie Hart as well as Chris's father Angus, Annie's parents Elsa and Jack Gates and their friends and neighbours for 2 years. Friends and neighbours included Roy Farmer, Nick Trip and Maria Simons. However, ratings were low and it wasn't long before Channel 5 threatened to axe Family Affairs. Drastic action was needed if the show was to survive, and so drastic action was taken: Brian Park, then producer of Britain's no. 1 soap Coronation Street, was hired at the end of 1998. In the next couple of months the Gates' were killed-off and early the following year, the decision was made to axe the Hart family all together. On 29th January 1999 (Episode 480), the Harts (minus Duncan who had already left the series) were killed off in a boat explosion on Mel and Roy Farmer's wedding day. Family Affairs: The Era of Change (From Episode 481 to Episode 1300) A more varied bunch of characters emerged such as Cat and Dave Matthews, Yasmin McHugh, Gemma Craig, Fern Sinclair, Declan Byrne, Gabby Johnson, Sadie Hargreaves, Siobhan Jones, Clive Starr, and later Nikki Warrington and her various family members. As a result of the much hyped boat explosion and the introduction of colourful new characters, Family Affairs started to do well - although it didn't last. The series became known for its bad acting and over the top story lines and viewers were not impressed. In 2000, ratings once again hit a rocky patch. In an attempt to win over viewers, the series decided to relocate. Previously the action took place in a series of suburban homes whose geographic relation to one another was not clearly defined by the series, and the primary meeting place for characters was Pete Callan's slick and modern riverside bar: The Lock. In 2000, Pete sold up and bought The Black Swan on Stanley Street and, despite the fact that the evil Pete was the most despised character, the series regulars followed him to his new pub! As time went by, viewers discovered that the homes and workplaces of many Family Affairs regulars were actually located on Stanley Street too including Yasmin's mini-market, Cat's hairdressing salon and Sadie's home (despite earlier location shooting that indicated her home was located in a spacious suburban housing estate of similar dwellings). Later, in became clear that Charnham wasn't in Kent anymore but had amazingly become a London suburb. Family Affairs: Just another soap? (From Episode 1301 to Episode 1675) Episode 1301 saw Family Affairs' second re-branding. It aired on the 25th March 2002 to mark the soap's 5th anniversary - this was to become Family Affairs' shortest era to date. With the series' relocation to Stanley Street complete, the series had almost completely detached itself from it's roots and began to resemble the British prime time shows like Coronation Street and EastEnders but once again fell under criticism for bad acting and bad writing. Despite having had a ratings boost in 2001 by the introduction of Australian soap Home and Away in the 6pm time slot before Family Affairs, the series continued to struggle and within 18 months the show once again faced the axe . . . Family Affairs: The Marquess/Davis Era (From Episode 1676 to Present) In September 2003, Paul Marquess took over as Family Affairs' Executive Producer, his right hand woman is Series Producer Alison Davis. The series was once again relaunched, almost as dramatically as the boat explosion 4 year before, almost every cast member left the show. Between September and November of 2003, there was a car accident (killing off two long serving characters and leading to another being imprisoned) and a fire (killing off original cast member Roy Farmer -- leaving Pete Callan (played by David Easter as the longest serving cast member). The dramatic events led to the departure of several other characters including Roy's wife Nikki Farmer (formerly Nikki Warrington). Initially, the relaunch came under criticism but the show soon won round old fans with the introduction of the Costello family, the Boulter family and in 2004 the Williams family. As well as stories never before covered on British soaps, Family Affairs began experimenting with new storytelling methods including a week set over a dramatic 24 hours, a flashback week and in May 2004, Family Affairs fans got the chance to vote for who they thought Marc Mackenzie should end up with, his wife Yasmin Mackenzie, or his long time girlfriend Geri Evans in British soap's first interactive storyline. This latest relaunch seems to have done the trick for fans with the series attracting up to 1.4 million viewers every day. This era will soon be coming to an end. Paul Marquess is leaving talkbackThames and rumour has it that Alison Davis already has! Their shoes will be filled by Jonathan Young (Executive Producer) and Sean O'Connor (Series Producer). O'Connor said that he wanted to get Family Affairs a bit of security and he planned to give the show a unique look and feel. However, it seems that he won't have much of an oppertunity to do that. On 2nd of August, Five announced that they'd come to the decision to axe Family Affairs. The series will cease shooting in October and will go off the air for good in December. Family Affairs is produced for Five by talkbackThames.
