“And the other important thing is that Cannell was one of the first U.S. TV producers to move production to Canada in a big way. I believe he first did this on Stingray, to accommodate star Nick Mancuso, who wanted to work closer to home. But upon discovering that Canada had lower production costs and good studio facilities, Cannell moved a lot of his shows to Vancouver. Other shows soon followed — partly because so many people working as producers and directors on other shows had gotten their start working for Cannell.”
…and they sure did follow his lead.
