North Exposure It could be the next loved TV classic to make a small screen return. CBS is in the early stages of the revival development of dramaturgy created by Joshua Brand and John Falsey in the mid-1990s, with series star Rob Morrow on board to reprise his Emmy-nominated role as Dr. Joel Fleischman Brand is writing a script for the possible revival, and will be executive producer of the series with Falsey, Morrow and former NBC Entertainment boss Ben Silverman. John Corbett, the original of the original series, is also linked as a producer and is expected to have a recurring role in the revival in case it is lit in green to the series.
The new From North, produced by NBC's sister studio, Universal Television, will be a reactivation / reboot combination, in which Morrow's character returns to Cicely, Alaska, after the death of a friend, meeting with characters from the original series and meeting some new "extravagant" residents of the town. Originally a summer experiment when it premiered in July 1990, North Exposure It was a critical success and, at the beginning of his career, also a great success in the ratings. The series was nominated for a Best Emmy Drama in all but the last year of his career, winning the award in its third season. After doing very well on Monday night for years, CBS moved the program to Wednesdays, which caused a sharp decline for Nielsen. (Fun Fact: Future Soprano the creator David Chase was an executive producer of the series during his last years.)
Buzz about a possible From North the revival began about a year ago, when the producers and the cast began to talk openly about the idea at the Austin ATX Television Festival. However, the return of the program is not yet a success: CBS has only committed to a script for the project and will not decide to make a new pilot (or series) until they see a finished product. But if things go well, it is very possible. From North will return to the airwaves next autumn or 2020, just in time for the 25th anniversary of the end of the program.
