Premise: A sprawling miniseries about unrest on each side of the Mason-Dixon line from 1842 to '61, adapted from John Jakes' bestselling novel. Most of the screen time went to pre-`Dirty Dancing' hunk Patrick Swayze and James Read as best friends from different parts of the country in the years leading up to the Civil War. The subsequent `North and South: Book II' in 1986 was equally successful, while the final installment of the series, 1994's `Heaven and Hell,' was a disappointment.
