The Crow: Stairway to Heaven was a 1998 Canadian television series created by Bryce Zabel based on The Crow comic by James O'Barr starring Mark Dacascos in the lead role as Eric Draven, reprising the role originally played by Brandon Lee in the 1994 film The Crow.
Made for syndication, The Crow: Stairway to Heaven ran for one season from 25 September 1998 to 22 May 1999. Production took place in Vancouver (in the series, named Port Columbia).
In The Crow, Eric Draven was lead guitarist in the band, Hangman's Joke. Exactly one year after his murder and the murder of his fiancée, Shelly, at the hands of T-Bird and his crew, Eric returns from the dead. Imbued with regenerative powers and heightened strength, and guided by a crow, he seeks to "set the wrong things right", and ultimately return to Shelly and move on to the Land of the Dead. In the television version of The Crow, he learns that simply killing these people off only complicates his redemptive mission.
