"Bronco" is a Western series on ABC from 1958 through 1962. It was shown by the BBC in the United Kingdom. The program starred Ty Hardin as Bronco Layne, a former Confederate officer who wandered the Old West, meeting such famous people as Wild Bill Hickok, Billy the Kid, Jesse James, Theodore Roosevelt, Belle Starr and Cole Younger.


"Bronco" was born when Warner Bros. executives and actor Clint Walker clashed over Walker's contract on the series "Cheyenne". Walker had walked out on his show over such stringent clauses as a requirement that he kick back half of all personal appearance fees to Warner Bros., and that he only record for Warner music labels. When the two sides came to an impasse, the network hired newcomer Ty Hardin to play the new character of Bronco Layne, but kept the title of "Cheyenne".

When Walker came back to his series, Bronco Layne was spun off into his own show. "Bronco" at first alternated with another Western series, "Sugarfoot", featuring Will Hutchins. In 1960, the two began alternating with "Cheyenne" under the "Cheyenne" title. "Sugarfoot" was dropped in 1961, leaving only "Bronco" and "Cheyenne" to alternate. Other Warner Bros. westerns in production around this time included "Maverick" with James Garner, Jack Kelly, and Roger Moore, "Colt .45" with Wayde Preston, and "Lawman" with John Russell; series characters occasionally crossed over into each others' shows.
