This half hour drama series was aimed at a young adult audience and was named after its location: Northwood, British Columbia. The producer of Britain’s EastEnders, Nick Orchard ,whose storytelling style was regarded as having more edge than the Degrassi series, created it. This show wasn’t afraid to deal with contemporary issues affecting youth, such as teen prostitution, drug abuse, pregnancy and alcoholism.
