Four Corners is an American prime time television drama that ran from February 24, 1998 to March 3, 1998 on CBS. It was produced by David Jacobs..

Synopsis[edit]

Following the death of her husband in a plane crash, Amanda Wyatt (Ann-Margret) struggles to keep her sprawling Homestead Ranch out of the hands of property developers. Working against her was her devious son Alex (Douglas Wert) who wanted to sell the land to developers and bail out with her cash. Her friend Carlotta (Sonia Braga) was also fighting to keep the land out of the developers hands as she represented the migrant workers of the area who depended on the land for their income. Other characters included Carlottas son Tomas (Kamar de los Reyes) who had been in love with Amandas flighty daughter Kate (Megan Ward) but had given her up for a life in the church but was now fighting his feelings for her; Sam (Raymond J. Barry), the ranch foreman and potential love interest for Amanda, caring school teacher Eva (Dahlia Waingort) and Caleb (Justin Chambers), the wayward son of Sam who had just been released from jail.

Production history[edit]

Produced by Michael Filerman and David Jacobs, who both worked on Dallas, Knots Landing and Falcon Crest, the show went through a number of name changes before going on air with the series being called Ventanas, Santa Fe and Homestead before they settled on Four Corners.

Location filming for the show took place in the San Gabriel Mountains in California. The premiere episode aired as a two-hour movie on CBS in the 9.00-11.00 slot on Tuesday February 24, 1998 with the next episode airing in what was supposed to be its regular one-hour slot at 10.00 on March 3, 1998. The show was the first drama on US network TV to be simulcast in both English and Spanish.[1]

The show was originally one of the highly touted shows of the 1997-1998 season but quickly became one of its biggest disasters as it was taken off air after only two episodes. It was subsequently rebroadcast on Lifetime Television as a two-part TV movie under the new title of Homestead. When it was aired internationally, it also used this title. It has been aired sporadically on UK digital TV channel CBS Drama since the channel launched in 2009.

Awards and nominations[edit]

Christopher Klatman was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music in 1998 but lost out to Fame L.A.[2]
