Nathaniel Arcand in Heartland

Heartland, a new Canadian TV series, features an Indian in a key role. Here's the story on it:A multi-generational family drama series set in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. Heartland is a place like no other; a horse ranch with a special mission of healing abused or neglected horses and finding them new homes. The series follows the Fleming family as they deal with the ups and downs of running a ranch that's been in the family for generations but is now deep in debt.And:

New TV Series:  HeartlandThis family drama series is based on the books by Lauren Brooke and is set in a fictional town, called "Hudson," in Alberta. The series is about a family struggling to overcome various obstacles ranging from debt to death. The family must work together and help one another in times of need, especially after the death of their mother. Heartland is the name of the family ranch.

The cast includes Chris Potter, Nathaniel Arcand, and Graham Wardle and Amber Marshall.

I was not able to find too much information about the show, since it has not even aired yet, but it looks like it could be interesting. And, I was surprised that I was able to find a tv show that took place in the Prairies since it seemed like the overwhelming majority of Canadian tv shows take place in either Ontario, Quebec, or B.C.

Hopefully, the show will do well.
