The New Maverick

series garner jack susan

(ABC, 9/3/1978, 120 mins). Recycling the legendary comedy Western series (1957-62), this pilot for a prospective new run for Maverick has brothers Bret and Bart (James Garner and Jack Kelly re creating their original roles). They join 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 cardsharp, 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.” (It was gone three months later.)
