* Best known for starring in the TV series "Northern Exposure" and the movie "Quiz Show," he wrote, directed and stars in the new film "Maze." Saturday Drive: I have a new baby, a 6-month-old, beautiful little girl, Tu, so I think the first thing would be to wake up late with her and my wife (actress Debbon Ayer) and walk along the beach. Maybe we'd drive up to Santa Barbara and check in to some place like the Four Seasons.

"The Whole Truth," which premieres Wednesday on ABC, offers Maura Tierney as New York City prosecutor Kathryn Peale and Rob Morrow as go-to defense attorney Jimmy Brogan, who, like Perry Mason and his perpetual opposing counsel Hamilton Burger, incredibly find themselves locked in weekly opposition. The novel twist is that sometimes one will win and sometimes the other. Jerry Bruckheimer is the producer, and most of what goes on here is a few clicks louder than life. Apart from the concept itself — which, though it beats at your head like an angry bird, is certainly airworthy — the hour's main attractions are Tierney and Morrow, who keep their own volume at a reasonable level, even when made to say things like "Fasten your seat belt, Jimmy" and "Game on, Katie.

"Northern Exposure" has always been the story of a fish out of water. For five hit seasons on CBS, the eccentricities of Cicely, Alaska, have been refracted through the eyes of Joel Fleischman, a confirmed New Yorker reluctantly stuck in the isolated Alaskan town to repay the state for his medical scholarship. Rob Morrow, the actor who plays Fleischman, was similarly bound to his TV contract. But over the summer he successfully fought to get out in order to pursue film roles.

Cold Cash?: "Northern Exposure" star Rob Morrow has resolved his contract dispute with series producers and will continue on the quirky CBS series set in Alaska. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but Jim Jackoway, one of Morrow's attorneys, said the dispute had been "amicably" worked out, and that Morrow was happy to be back on the show, which received 16 Emmy nominations last Thursday, including one for Morrow as best lead actor in a drama series.

"Maze" is an intelligent and appealing portrait of a young man afflicted with Tourette syndrome who has become a successful painter and sculptor but has told himself to forget about love and to focus on sheer survival. Writer-producer-director-star Rob Morrow doesn't pull punches: A woman who goes on a date with Morrow's Lyle Maze is in danger of his inadvertently knocking a glass of wine all over her while in the grip of an especially strong seizure.

Having heard of, but until now not taken sides in, the dispute between actor Rob Morrow and Universal/CBS, I am prompted to comment on the gall displayed by this man ("Making Nicely in Cicely," July 27). How can any member of the working class take pity on his $20,000-per-episode fee? How dare he insinuate that he is due a salary to compensate for the 11 years that he struggled in his craft or that he deserves, for that matter, a salary on par with Ted Danson or John Forsythe. Who held a gun to this man's head and told him he had to hire a publicist/lawyer/manager?

It is astonishing to me that a television show that stars Rob Morrow, Sabrina Lloyd, David Krumholtz and Judd Hirsch, four of the most interesting and attractive and amusing actors television has ever beamed into a living room, would turn out to be a show that -- on the basis of its pilot, at least -- I would not ever care to watch again. (And there's Peter MacNicol lurking around the corners, as well.

ROB MORROW is sitting on the floor of his trailer at a downtown Los Angeles movie and TV studio doing yoga stretches. There's a scented candle burning on the counter and numerous pictures of his 4-year-old daughter, Tu, up on the wall. He's trying to stay limber and rested for another long day on the set of his hit CBS series, "Numb3rs," which airs Friday evenings. "It is consistently in the 12- to 14-hour days," explains Morrow, a youthful 43.

Things seem to be back to normal in Cicely, Alaska--or at least as normal as it can get in the fictional outback town that is the setting for the quirky CBS hit "Northern Exposure." The owls are hooting, the moose is walking through town and Chris-in-the-morning, the philosophical radio deejay, is back on the mike spouting his metaphysical sayings to the oddball residents. But perhaps more important, the doctor is in--although it looked for a while as if he might be out for a long time.
