This was only a Pilot episode that aired once on ABC.
7 March 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This was only a Pilot episode that aired only once on ABC in the summer of 1993, on a Saturday night. It was not listed in TV GUIDE except as "To Be Announced".

"Country Estates" also starred Jon Polito. In this one quirky hour, a teenage boy and his family moved to the suburb of Country Estates. He met the girl, "Heather", as well as another kid who rode a motorcycle.

One night the boy witnessed a murder next door to him, but afterwards it was as if nothing happened. This show felt like a more mature "Eerie Indiana".
