Question: I remember hearing that Ben Affleck had been in a short lived series when he was a pre-teen. Any info? — Evan, Pittsburgh, Pa.

Televisionary: If you're talking Affleck's pre-teen years, you must mean PBS's 13-episode series The Voyage of the Mimi and 12-episode follow-up, The Second Voyage of the Mimi, in which the actor's character took part in expeditions to study whales and find a lost Mayan city. Otherwise, Affleck's only other series work was in NBC's 1993-94 small-town football drama Against the Grain, in which he played a teen quarterback.
