    By SHANNON HEUPEL, Montgomery Advertiser MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — When Saladin Patterson thinks of his wonder years, they revolve around Montgomery. The good, the bad, the funny, the sad… those days were all in this central Alabama region. Soon, hopefully, the flavor of that time will be on display across the nation. “This is going to be a love letter to Montgomery, about Montgomery and the people of Montgomery,” said Patterson, who grew up here and is writing the pilot for a new version of “The Wonder Years” for ABC. The original show ran six seasons from 1988-1993. It was centered around the Arnolds, a white family in northern “Anywhere, USA.” They never actually said where they were. Saladin’s version sets the show solidly in Montgomery with a Black family. Like the original, it will start in 1968. “One of the reasons to explore that time period with a Black middle class family in Montgomery is because the story of the Black middle class really hasn’t been represented in TV and film from that time period,” Patterson said. Saladin, known...
