    TOM STONE is the story of a Calgary ex-cop, ex-rig worker and ex-con who gets recruited to work undercover for RCMP Corporal Marina Di Luzio, a commercial crime specialist from Toronto. Between them, they go places that Marina's official counterparts can't, catching the bad guys who usually get away -- criminals with influence and money: the ones who consider themselves above the law. While Tom is happy to be out of jail, he's not so happy under Marina's controlling thumb. And sometimes undercover life deals out a rougher hand than even Tom bargained for. He wants out. And he wants his family land back. He needs money, and he needs to stay out of jail. Unfortunately, to accomplish these two objectives he needs Marina. And Marina needs Tom -- as much as she hates to admit it. She's got confidence, attitude and smarts but she's stuck in Calgary, and the only way out is gaining recognition for solving the high profile cases the city seems to attract. But she's frustrated because no one seems to be cooperating with her desperate agenda to get out of Cowtown. Jack Welsh wants to help them both. Especially if it helps him. And as it turns out, keeping the duo together and working in Commercial Crime in Calgary keeps him on the inside track when it comes to other people's money. And it's always about other people's money for Jack. Though Jack's far from a diplomat, once in awhile his larcenous skill set comes in handy, if there's something in it for him. While Tom and Marina battle each other, Calgary's RCMP Commercial Crime unit is in a whole different kind of physical and emotional turmoil. They've just moved to new offices and nervously await the arrival of their new Officer in Charge. Their worst fears are confirmed when Inspector Alexandra Black strides in and announces her bone-chilling plan to get rid of the deadwood and turn the unit into "a successful and functioning department of the RCMP." Alexandra keeps Sergeant Grant Davidson and unit clerk Amy Matuziak, scrambling as she threatens to send them both to the hinterlands. Their sense of impending doom creates some strange alliances throughout the course of the season ahead.moreless

    CBC (ended 1994)
    This half-hour teen drama series aired on the CBC from 1991 to 1994 and was set in Northwood, British Columbia, near Vancouver. The series originated as a six-part mini-series that followed the suicide of a classmate in the pilot episode, and was originally aired right after Degrassi. Very different from previous Canadian drama series based around teens like the Degrassi series, the show was created by Nick Orchard, famous for his involvement with gritty, hard-core British serials such as Eastenders and Brookside. It was created as the first project of Orchard's Soapbox Productions internationally co-produced with Sveriges Television in Sweden. Although not as well-known as Degrassi, Northwood won numerous awards including the Silver Medal from the New York Festivals, the Award of Excellence from the Alliance for Children & Television, and several Chris Awards. While Degrassi tended to be aimed at the "tween" generation, Northwood's dark storylines and more believable, rounded characters were more aimed at teenagers and young adults. The series was critically acclaimed during its first run for it's frank and open portrayal of controversial issues like teen prostitution, drug abuse, teen pregnancy, sexual abuse, and alcoholism. Several of the series' stars went on fame, including Lochlyn Munro who guest-starred on a number of American shows like Charmed and co-starred in Scary Movie, and Deanna Milligan who has appeared in numerous North American television shows and films.

    CBC (ended 1989)
    "Degrassi Junior High" was set in Toronto, Canada and focused on the lives of teenage students. The charcters were realisitc and delt with real life issues such as sex, drugs, dating, pregnancy, rock and roll, and much more. The actors looked like real people, not models, and they were good at acting. This added to how realistic Degrassi JH was.

    Degrassi Junior High ran for three seasons and after the students graduated from junior high school, the show became Degrassi High, and continued for two more seasons. The following year saw the tv movie School's Out, which focused on the student's life during the summer after high-school graduation. In 2001 Degrassi: The Next Generation started. It is much like Degrassi Jr High but with a new young cast... and old faves like Snake, Spike, Joey, & Caitlin are now parents & teachers (and couples).

    Theme Song Wake up in the morning, feeling shy and lonely, gee, I gotta go to this school. I don't think I can make it, don't think I can take, I wonder what I'm gonna do. But when I look around and see, that someone is smiling right at me, wait, someone talkin' to me, hey, I gotta new friend. Everybody can succeed, all you gotta do is believe, let's be honest with yourself, forget your fears and doubts, come on give us a try at Degrassi Junior High.

    Felicity has many ideals, but when Gus arrives in Avonlea he isn't exactly what she is looking for, but he is determined that she is the girl for him.

    Following their success with "Anne of Green Gables," the talented duo of Kevin Sullivan and Trudy Grant set their eyes toward a television series, based on one of Lucy Maud Montgomery's favorite characters, Sara Stanley, The Story Girl.

    Using tales from the books, "The Story Girl," "The Golden Road," "The Chronicles of Avonlea" and "The Further of Chronicles of Avonlea," Sullivan Entertainment created a heartwarming family c TV series. Set against the stunning backdrop of Prince Edward Island, Canada, Road to Avonlea follows the adventures of the King family and the residents in the quaint town of Avonlea at the turn of the 20th century.

The series ran for seven seasons until 1996, a total of 91 - 1 hour episodes. Since the series end, Sullivan Entertainment has filmed a special reunion movie in 1998, "Happy Christmas Miss King" with many of our favorite Avonlea family members.
