TV series about Aboriginal-Ukrainian "blended" family premieres tonight

Mixed Blessings is a 6-episode TV series about a cross-cultural romance between a Ukrainian plumber and a Cree waitress... It's essentially "Corner Gas" meets "The Brady Bunch" in the Alberta boomtown of Ft. MacMurray. It stars Edmonton-born Gary Basaraba and native actress Tina Lameman.

You can get a "sneak preview" in this article in today's Edmonton Journal.

If you want a "behind-the-scenes" background check out my interview with the series' co-creator and co-producer on Sunday's program, which is archived (along with the stand-alone interview) at the Nash Holos website. (It will also be rebroadcast on Roman Brytan's Radio Zhurnal on WorldFM radio in Edmonton sometime this week.)

Mixed Blessings premiers on APTN tonight and will air 3 times a week during prime time.

Tuesdays, starting November 6 at 9 PM (ET/PT)
Fridays, from November 9 at 8:30 PM
Sundays, from November 11 at 8 PM

Re APTN, well, with technology constantly morphing at breakneck speed, who knows what the future holds. ;-)
