From Jim Bawden of the Toronto Star:
- Hot Box: TV to talk about
It may have taken six years longer than planned but filming is underway on the new CBC drama series The Border. Originally conceived as a TV flick, it was all ready to go when the tragedy of 9/11 unfolded and the project deemed too sensitive went on the back burner. Executive producer Peter Raymont has restructured the material into a 13-week drama series starring James McGowan (Warriors Of Terra), Graham Abbey (Heartland) and Sofia Milos (CSI: Miami). Feeling is CBC will run it midseason.
