> Description 
Bronco was a Western series on ABC from 1958 through 1962. 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, 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. In 1960, the two began alternating with Cheyenne under the Cheyenne title. Sugarfoot was dropped in 1961, leaving only Bronco and Cheyenne to alternate.
