Laramie

Show Summary

"Laramie" is a Western TV series that aired from 1959 to 1963 on NBC during the height of popularity of western series. Set it Laramie, Wyoming in the 1870s, the hour-long episodes followed the drama of life with Slim Sherman, the owner of a stagecoach relay station, and Jess Harper, a drifter with a shady past who tries putting down some roots at the Sherman Ranch. The main characters were portrayed by John Smith and Robert Fuller. The series also featured a host of guest stars, many of whom could be considered legends of the Western genre and some who went on to become major TV or film stars.

Today, shown frequently in reruns and available on DVD, "Laramie" continues to have a large following, and Fuller, who has a large fan club, still makes personal appearances to talk about his work on "Laramie," "Wagon Train," the popular 1970s medical drama "Emergency" and his many film and tv series appearances.
