Despite being set in Africa, the show featured only three African main characters, one in each season. At the end of the first season, Malick Bowens
(as Simon Govier) decided he did not want to continue with the series. Errol Slue
(Jack Benton) died at the end of the second season. William S. Taylor
, hired to replace Slue, enjoyed playing the role of Dan Miller and would have gladly continued it. Unfortunately, the show ceased production after the untimely death of Sean Roberge
