1 9 6 2 – 1 9 6 4 (USA)
33 x 60 minute episodes

Jim Redigo (Richard Egan) is the foreman of the half-million-acre Garrett Ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Jim supervises operations for Lucia Garrett (Anne Seymour), the ranch owner. Her husband, Dave Garrett, was born in 1924 and lost his life in 1954 during a bad storm when he drowned in a flash flood.

Connie (Terry Moore) and Tal (Ryan O’Neal) are Lucia’s adult children. Tal assists Jim and their ranch hand, Paul Moreno (Charles Bronson). Connie is more business-minded and runs the Lazy G Guest Ranch.

The series did not fare well and for the second season (1963) the title was changed to Redigo, with Jim now the owner of his own cattle ranch in Mesa, New Mexico, and episodes reduced from 60 minutes to 30 minutes and several major cast changes.
