Pony Express is a half-hour syndicated western television series which ended its 39-episode schedule in 1960, the centennial of the launching of the original Pony Express, which lasted only from April 1860 to October 1861. The series ran from the fall of 1959 to the summer of 1960.
Pony Express TV series Grant Sullivan as Brett Clark, a roving investigator for the Pony Express. Bill Cord appeared as Pony Express troubleshooter Tom Clyde; Don Dorrell, Donovan; and Robert Ivers, Clarence McGrew.
Pony Express is similar to Dale Robertson's Tales of Wells Fargo in that the series focuses on a Pony Express detective, a phenomenon which permitted a greater variety of themes and plots. Brett Clark and Tom Clyde solved Pony Express mysteries, much as Robertson's character, Jim Hardie, resolved problems encountered by Wells Fargo.
The syndicated Pony Express was not renewed for a second season, as too few affiliates carried the program to make an extension financially feasible.
