Laramie is an Americanmarker Western television series that aired on NBC from 1959 to 1963. Laramie was a Revue Studios production which originally starred John Smith as Slim Sherman, Robert Fuller as Jess Harper, Hoagy Carmichael as Jonesy and Robert Crawford, Jr., as Andy Sherman.

Synopsis

The story was about two brothers and a drifter who come together to run a stagecoach stop for the Great Central Overland Mail. After the first season, Hoagy Carmichael's contract was not renewed by NBC. His character was written out with the explanation that he accompanied Andy to boarding school in St. Louismarker, Missourimarker. Andy, however, would appear in a couple of episodes during the second season.

To restore the chemistry of the original cast, as the third season began, Spring Byington and Dennis Holmes joined the cast as Miss Daisy Cooper and Mike Williams respectively. The series also made the transition from black-and-white to color at the beginning of its' third season (September 1961). On January 1, 1962, a new version of the NBC peacock "living color" logo was introduced before that night's Laramie broadcast, and would be used before every color show on the network until 1970. Because of this, it is sometimes referred to as the "Laramie peacock". Due to low ratings, Laramie was canceled after its fourth season.

The German-Title of the series is: Am Fuß der blauen Berge
