Synopsis

Recycling the legendary comedy Western series (1957-62), this pilot for a prospective new run for "Maverick" has brothers Bret and Bart (Garner and Kelly recreating their original roles) joining forces with the eager but inexperienced son of their British cousin Beau (played in the earlier series by Roger Moore) in a free-wheeling adventure involving them with a female card-sharp, a corrupt judge, an ill-tempered gunrunner, a gang of train robbers and a crafty farm girl. Charles Frank and Susan Blanchard returned when the new series premiered in the fall of 1979 as "Young Maverick."
