    • International Airdates:
      Canada: June 20 on ABC Family Ch.16

    • This episode was two hours long, instead of the normal one hour episode. The original idea of ABC Family was to make it a movie, but then they broke it into one hour episodes. The first episode was two hours long, and is considered two episodes on the DVD, but was aired as one on its premiere night.

    • Wildfire had previously been developed at the WB as a potential series, but was made into a two-hour movie instead after moving to ABC Family (Daily Variety, Oct. 13). Execs then decided after screening the finished product they wanted twelve episodes, including the 2-hour premiere.

    • Wildfire is actually being filmed in New Mexico, not in Fremont (Northern California) where it is set.

    • Wildfire's pilot broke records for ABC Family, becoming the most watched in the history of the channel with a 1.7 HH rating.
