This drama was based on Lucy Maud Montgomery’s books of the same name. Montgomery also wrote Anne of Green Gables, which was produced for television a few years earlier. Kevin Sullivan, who was prompted by a fan of Montgomery’s books to produce a series for television, immediately committed his company to the Emily series. Unlike Anne of Green Gables, which was shot in Uxbridge, Ontario, this series was faithful to its location: Prince Edward Island. It was one of the most successful programs on CBC.
