Canadian television drama series, which debuted January 6, 2009 on
CBC Television. Originally titled Cowgirls, CBC requested the
change to Wild Roses after testing the title. The show was
officially cancelled by the CBC on April 22, 2009 after only one
season. Reruns of the show are seen during the summer, starting
June 19, Friday nights at 9:00 (9:30 in Newfoundland) on most CBC
Television Stations. The series focuses on the conflict between the
McGregors, a family of wealthy oil developers residing on Montrose
Ranch, and the Henrys, a widow and her three daughters living in
the neighbouring Rivercross Ranch. Prior to the series, Rivercross
used to belong to the McGregors, but was given to the Henrys by the
now-deceased head of the McGregor family. The current head of the
McGregor family, David, resented this decision and wants to take
back Rivercross. Shortly before the beginning of the series, David
McGregor provided a loan to the Henrys to help them operate their
ranch with the promise to repay $10,000 back monthly. As the series
begin, the Henrys have defaulted on roughly $60,000 in monthly
payments, and David tries to foreclose on the property. The show is
primarily shot at The Window Studio as well as on location in
Calgary, Alberta, and surrounding areas within a one-hour drive
such as Bragg Creek and Bearspaw. Common shooting locations around
Calgary include Stephen Avenue, Inglewood, Bankers Hall Towers and
numerous locations in the downtown core. One of the major shots
commonly seen in the series is the overlooking Rocky Mountains and
rolling foothills, a signature landscape associated with Calgary.
The opening theme song is Scottish singer, KT Tunstall. "Black
