Kings Row (ABC 1955-1956, Jack Kelly, Robert Horton)

Published

Drama series Kings Row told stories of the residents of a small town, especially psychiatrist Dr Parris Mitchell.
The series was one of three rotating series that aired under the umbrella title of Warner Brothers Presents. The other two were Casablanca and Cheyenne.

Like the other two series the show was also based on a movie (made in 1942). Future Western stars Jack Kelly (Maverick) and Robert Horton (Wagon Train) starred in the roles originated on the big screen by Bob Cummings and Ronald Reagan respectively.

Kings Row along with Casablanca were both dropped after each aired for only one season and a handful of episodes. The third series, Cheyenne, was a hit in the ratings and continued on for seven more seasons mostly on a rotating basis with other Western series.
