You have noted on your Laramie tv show page that Don Durant was being set up to take John Smith's place in the
5th season of Laramie. This is a popular rumor, but is just that. I was a good friend of the Laramie producer,
John Champion. and asked him about this story. He said it was ABSOLUTELY not true - said he wouldn't have continued
with Laramie without both John and Bob in the roles as Slim and Jess and he indicated that John had already signed a
lucrative contract with Revue.I would greatly appreciate it if you would correct this error and help to eliminate
this rumor. Mary Brown

Premise:
Two friends Slim Sherman and Jess Harper own a trading station in Wyoming after the Civil War. Passers-by each week
meant a long guest list and a wide range of stories. A good family weatern.
It is the 1870s in Wyoming Territory. Slim Sherman and his 14-year-old brother Andy try to hang on to their ranch
after their father is shot by a land grabber. They augment their slight cattle ranch income by serving as a stagecoach
station near Laramie.
