Failed Pilot For T.V. Series
26 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For those of you who don't already know this, Pine Canyon Is Burning was a pilot for a television series that never came to fruition.

It stars Kent McCord (from Adam-12 fame) as an L.A. County Fire Department captain, whose wife died, and is left with his young son & daughter to care for.

His late wife's sister, who is wealthy, wants to take custody of them, because she feels she can give them a better life, given he is away from home during his 24 hour-long shifts, and doesn't make much $.

Wanting to spend more time with the kids, he accepts re-assignment at a "brush station", whose current captain is retiring.

Once relocated, he gets the kids enrolled into their new school (he butts heads with the attractive teacher), and gets the kids a puppy.

After some small job-related responses, McCord is put to the test when a brush fire breaks out near his home / fire station.

The kids run off looking for their puppy, against their father's orders and get lost.

His duties keep him from looking for his kids, and he asks other fire-fighters to be on the lookout for them.

While I don't remember for certain how it ends, I believe they wind up at the school house, and the teacher, not knowing what it is like to be a fireman, scolds McCord for not taking better care of his kids, but warms up to him in the end.

I was 12 when Pine Canyon first aired. Being a huge fan of Emergency, which was still on the air, I was really hoping PCIB would become a full-fledged television show, and was disappointed when that didn't happen.
