TV show description:
In this low-budget syndicated series, Lassie lives with the McCullough family in Glen Ridge, California.
The father, Chris (Christopher Stone), is a struggling architect and building contractor. He’s married to Dee (Dee Wallace Stone), a homemaker, and together, they have two children. Megan (Wendy Cox) is a sensible 14 year old teenager while Will (Will Nipper) is the 10 year old owner of Lassie.
Chris’ brother, Steve (Jon Provost), is a local real estate agent who rescued Lassie as a pup and gave her to his nephew. In the first episode, Steve is accidentally shot by a deer hunter out of season. The law breaker then proceeds to claim that Lassie bit him so that the dog can’t lead help to Steve.
