This hour-long romantic comedy was a feature film on CBC in 1998. It was developed into a continuing series that ran the following year. The film was directed by Kari Skogland and featured the likable Sarah Chalke as Gloria McIntosh. Chalke continued as the lead in the series. She later appeared as Dr. Eliot Reid on the NBC show, Scrubs.

The show was based on the adventures of Richmond P. Hobson Jr., a writer and rancher who lived in Northern British Columbia. He wrote several books about his experiences in the country including The Rancher Takes A Wife and Nothing Too Good For A Cowboy. Yannick Bisson played Hobson in the series.
