A great show to direct
1 April 2007 | by peeteySee all my reviews

I directed three episodes and really enjoyed the young cast. I look back now and realize how innovative the show was for it's time while written by Nick Corea (who passed away from cancer). The show also had a really great DP by the name of Charlie Correl. I wonder where he is today. Maybe he'll read this comment and tell me how to get in touch with him. Patrick Swayze's father had sadly passed away just before I was to direct my first show on this series. This was the first time the show had a woman director, as was usual for that period, and I was a bit nervous, but Patrick, being the total professional and gentleman that he is, made every effort to make my job easier. Nick Corea was a crazy man, but I look back at this show with great warmth. Barbara Peeters
