Terence Hill is Pietro, the forest ranger, in our latest TV success One Step From Heaven (12X50′, 23% average share prime time, RAI UNO), a detective-comedy set in the wonderful mountains of Alto Adige.
Pietro hides a terrible secret from his past. An expert climber, he was the powerless witness of his wife’s fatal fall while they were both climbing a difficult wall.
His life has never been the same again and he decided to retire to the mountain village of San Candido, hoping to find both peace and his old self.
He has become the only local authority and everybody looks to him as their “police corps” often involved in strange cases. But one day Vincenzo, the “real” chief of police arrives at San Candido from Naples.
Vincenzo and Pietro are like day and night, one comes from a big city and does not like it here; the other dislikes the frantic rhythms of big cities, and loves it here. Eventually Vincenzo will become very fond of his new residence; Silvia, the village’s veterinarian, his new and unexpected love, might have helped a little.
This is a story that combines the epic characters of the Western genre and a fairytale world.
Detection and comedy, drama, love, friendship, secrets from the past and a confrontation between nature, animals and men are combined in rich appealing stories.
