Wildside (1985)

Created by Tom Greene, Wildside debuted on March 21st 1985 and ran for six episodes. The show starred William Smith, J. Eddie Peck, Howard Rollins, Sandy McPeak, Terry Funk, John D’Aquino, and Meg Ryan.

It follows five reformed outlaws, the leader being J. Wendell Summerhayes (McPeak) who since going straight has become governor of California. The other four men have also moved on with their lives. Expert marksman Brodie Hollister (Smith) has now turned horse breeder and trainer; expert weapon thrower Varges de la Cosa (D’Aquino) has become a gun salesman (although he hates guns); demolitions expert Bannister Sparks (Rollins) has become a mercantile businessman, whilst strong brawler and lasso expert Prometheus Jones (Funk) is now the town veterinarian.

Into a lawless land, they brought their own style of justice. Five men, one mission: The Chamber of Commerce of Wildside!

Also present in the town of Wildside are Brodie’s son Sutton (J. Eddie Peck), Cally Oaks (Meg Ryan), editor of the Wildside newspaper, her assistant editor Elliot Throgmorton (Kurt Fuller), Alice Freeze (Robin Hoff) the town mortician, Skillet (Timothy Scott), the chef at the town’s restaurant.

Wildside is generally a quiet and peaceful town but occasionally trouble rides in making Summerhayes appeal to his former gang members for help resulting in a “hunting party” being formed to deal with the problem of the week.

Through its six episodes Wildside also saw appearences from Jason Hervey, Martin Kove, Paul Koslo, James Cromwell, Geoffrey Lewis, Patrick Culliton, Tommy Lammey, Buddy Van Horn, Joshua Bryant, Sid Haig, Buck Taylor, DeeDee Rescher, and many more.
