Applause to producers Joshua Brand and John Falsey. "A Year in the Life" was such a joy to watch. I wish it would have lasted longer than six hours. It would make a wonderful series. I hope Falsey and Brand continue to make classic programs. April L. Rocha, Santa Monica

During one three-month block recently, TV writer-producers Joshua Brand and John Falsey had virtually every day booked, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., with meetings on the half hour. No breaks, just continuous meetings. During another monthlong stretch this summer, the two partners didn't see each other once or even speak on the phone because they were so busy.

For the upcoming ABC drama "Going to Extremes," another fish-out-of-water story in the spirit of "Northern Exposure," creators Joshua Brand and John Falsey have decided to go offshore. To get their medical degrees, a group of kids who were turned down stateside take their studies to the fictional Caribbean island of Jantique, inspired by a real medical school located on Grenada. "The core of the show is clash of culture," Falsey said. "A First World sensibility living in a Third World culture.
