Series 3: Clan Kitteridge

The Unisphere in Flushing Meadows, Corona Park

Since their ancestors arrived at Ellis Island from England in the early 1890’s and settled in Queens, the Kitteridge clan has had a strong sense of patriotism and civic duty. For generations, members of this large, tight-knit family have served their country as respected and highly decorated soldiers in the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy. In addition to following up their regular service with time in the reserves, Kitteridge men and women have further distinguished themselves with their civic contributions in all five New York City boroughs.

When their father is badly wounded in combat and is forced to retire from the U.S.A.F., the current generation of preteen and teenage Kitteridge kids find themselves suddenly relocated to Texas when he’s offered a tenure-track professorship at St. Kate’s University. Now living in Kilcavan City, the five boys and four girls from Flushing find themselves facing off against the Cousins in both scholastics and in sports, and a new North/South, English/Irish rivalry is born.

Determined to keep their traditions alive in their new home, four of the siblings form a new branch of the “family business” by joining the ranks of Kilcavan City’s firefighters and EMTs, while the others forge new paths in familiar territories of law, education and journalism. These Kitteridge siblings are determined, dedicated, resourceful, and fiercely loyal men and women who will overcome obstacles together and win the hearts of those they love by being their true self.
