Neon Rider is a Canadian drama television series which first aired between 1990 and 1995. Created by Winston Rekert and Danny Virtue, the show was about the title character, a psychologist named Michael Terry (Rekert) who, after writing a successful book on adolescent psychology, purchases his childhood friend's family ranch just outside of Mission, B.C. to open a therapeutic residential treatment program for troubled and abused teens. The series was filmed and set in Vancouver, and British Columbia's Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley.[1]

Other cast members included Sam Sarkar, William S. Taylor, Peter Williams, Suzanne Errett-Balcom, Antoinette Bower, Barbara Tyson, Alex Bruhanski, Philip Granger and Jim Byrnes.

Neon Rider was produced by Alliance Atlantis and broadcast on the CTV Television Network on Saturdays at 10 PM then moved to 8 PM in 1991. CTV cancelled the series in 1992 after which original episodes continued to air on the youth-oriented cable network YTV and in syndication.

The series was also popular in Gibraltar where it aired on GBC TV.

SciFi veteran David Winning directed the third-season episode "Straight Home" guest-starring Martin Cummins.[2]
