So, it’s about a widower, with some kids, leaving the city to go to a small northern town. It’s awful close to “Everwood” (of late and fond memory) … or is it? Sound off in the comments!
Just picked up by Netflix, per Variety:

Logline: After the death of his wife Sarah, John West (Baldwin) packs up his three children and moves from their hectic urban life to his small northern hometown to take command of the local Search & Rescue service.

The children’s aunt (Robertson) helps John and his children heal as she copes with the loss of her sister and her desire to have a family of her own.

Is Billy Baldwin the new Treat Williams? Will there be a coma boy?
Or, is this some strange hybrid of “Northern Exposure” and “Everwood” — does that mean moose?
So many questions.
