Writer John Carlen offers two concurrent tales — a wealthy, reckless 18 -year-old visitor (Cathy Shawver) who has eyes for young Sheriff Ty Cooper (Alistair MacDougall), and a visiting couple with their idiot-savant son (Aaron Freeman).

Tech credits are expert, and director Virgil Vogel’s adroitness at storytelling and pacing are in evidence, but Ray Bunch’s jangling, shrieking action score yells too much for the would-be serenity of the mountain community.

High Sierra Search and Rescue If You Have to Ask the Price

(Sun. (11), 10-11 p.m., NBC)

Production: Filmed in Bear Valley, Calif., by A Shane Co. and Hallmark Entertainment. Executive producer, Joan Conrad Erwin; co-executive producer, Chris Abbott; producer, Shane Conrad; director, Virgil Vogel; writer, John Carlen; creators, Robert Conrad, George Schenck, Frank Cardea; camera, Edward Plante; editor, Charley Coleman; production designer, Nelson Willis; sound, Four Media Co.; music, Ray Bunch. #Cast: Robert Conrad, Dee Wallace Stone, LaVelda Fann, Alistair MacDougall, Ramon Franco, Brittney Powell, Jason Lewis, Kathy Shawver, Tim Kelleher, Ann Marie Lee, Aaron Freeman, Micah Dyer, John McCann, Tucker Tooley, Danielle Raciti, Bill Erwin. Dependable as the dawn, Robert Conrad is back for another series. While this latest outdoor actioner, with its touches of old-fashioned virtues, may play like escapist formula and offer fodder for demurrers, Conrad and the summer series toss in wholesome adventure; there's a wide audience ready and willing. The telefilm "Search and Rescue" aired successfully in March 1994; the series includes five one-hour chapters playing appropriately at 8 p.m. Wednesdays, concluding with a two-part seg. A lot of people will find the basic values promoted here to their liking; the Conrad persona signals firmness and integrity.
