Do you remember a show with, ...

Kene Holliday and Victor French, Carter Country

Question: Do you remember a show with, I think, the guy from Highway to Heaven and a black actor that was sort of a comedy version of In the Heat of the Night? It's driving me nuts.


Answer: Yes.

Aaaah, you didn't really think I was gonna stop at being a wiseacre and answer your question with one word, did you? You'll never so easily curb my urge to babble, Joon.

Funny you use the word "nuts," since the show in question, ABC's Carter Country, bore the name of former peanut farmer Jimmy Carter, who was president at the time it debuted in September 1977. As you say, it bore a strong resemblance to In the Heat of the Night, which 10 years later would be a hit TV series itself.

Premise: An angel returns to Earth and helps troubled humans in a forerunner to `Touched by an Angel' that reunited producer Michael Landon with Victor French, his costar from `Little House on the Prairie.' The popular Emmy-nominated drama found Jonathan Smith assisting those around the country plagued by disease, loss and loneliness, though there was also time for humor, as witness one episode, `I Was a Middle-Aged Werewolf,' which spoofs Landon's 1957 film `I Was a Teenage Werewolf.'
