49th and Main is being developed as a daytime serial for CBC by William B. Davis Productions and Raging Ruby Pictures.
CBC put out a call for proposals for their new serial and had 350 submissions which have now been shortlisted to two.
The world of Dr. Cedric Ferriera and his young son is turned upside down when he arrives at 49th and Main in Vancouver to set up his new medical practice. For Cedric, born in Kenya of Indian parents and educated in England, Canada turns out to be a moving target as he tries to start a new life in this volatile and richly diverse community.
The concept and the world of the series has been created by the wonderfully talented Barbara Ellison, and the scripts have been written by Barbara Ellison and William B. Davis. Bill Gray of Raging Ruby Pictures acts as Story Editor.
