Now on KINDLE!

Many Years ago...

.. a little CBS summer experiment premiered. Was supposed to be 8 shows and done.  It ended up to be 110 episodes; 1990-1995. Wow.

After visiting Moosefest in the summer of 2015, I can tell you Northern Exposure fans are still the most gracious and wonderful honorary Cicelians I have even known.  We had a book signing event and the line went around the block of Dr. Fleischman's office (now Cicely Gifts).  It was July of 1990 that our pilot episode aired on CBS and I know my life hasn't been the same since.

Many of those same fans helped our effort to reboot the show.

In May of 2013 we invited everyone to participate in the creation of my book, Northern Exposed with an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.  The response was, in a word, stunning.  We took a camera to Roslyn and revisited all the iconic locations from the show, and then I sat down with all the surviving cast members (Peg left us too soon and we dedicated the DVD set to her memory) and we talked about our memories.  The result of all this was a book and DVD set that  thousands of good folks really seem to enjoy! In 2020 we discovered that Kindle would be the best way to continue offering the book and Vimeo Video on Demand would be best for people to watch the DVD instantly.

Northern Exposure was an extraordinarily peculiar network television show and no one had any expectations for it. Tossed into the CBS lineup in the middle of the summer of 1990, it was expected to fill eight hours of primetime television programming and then go its merry way into oblivion.

What CBS didn't count on was an addictive combination of quirkiness and adventure that would rivet millions of fans, creating a cult-like following that would drive them back to the box to watch their Northern Exposure friends on a regular basis.

My character, Ed Chigliak (whose last name I didn't learn until the sixth episode) was perhaps the most peculiar of them all. Ed bridged the world of the wilderness with that of modern America. He was wise in the ways of his native forefathers and could effortlessly quote Woody Allen and Steven Spielberg.

Northern Exposed gives those millions of Northern Exposure fans the opportunity to enjoy an inside look at the interaction and daily lives of that cast and those producers.
