getTV Acquires Classic TV Westerns; Candace Cameron Bure Joins The View as Co-Host

getTV

Acclaimed movie diginet getTV introduces classic TV series to its lineup for the first time by adding a block of rarely seen Western series starting Saturday, September 12 at 12pm ET. The brand new block is a part of the network's popular ongoing all-day Saturday Westerns lineup, and will debut with five episodes of the 1971 series Nichols, starring beloved leading man James Garner and a young Margot Kidder, in one of her first major roles. Additionally, getTV will present five episodes of the wandering gunslinger series Hondo from 1967, starring Ralph Taeger and Michael Pate, on September 19; and 10 episodes of 1965's A Man Called Shenandoah, starring Robert Horton, on September 26; both also starting at Noon ET. Following three weeks of mini-marathons, all of the newly added Western series will join the regular Saturday lineup on a weekly basis in October.

James Garner - Nichols

James Garner is a man looking for a fresh start in Nichols, set in small-town Arizona in the early 1900s. Having left an 18-year career in the military, Garner as Nichols finds himself blackmailed into the role of town sheriff by the villainous Ketcham Family, who run the town. Riding a motorcycle instead of a horse, and forsaking guns in favor of more peaceful resolutions, the newly-crowned lawman takes on bandits, manages town bullies and woos beautiful bar maid Margot Kidder...all with his own unique style. Created by Oscar®-winning screenwriter Frank Pierson, with episodes directed by such notables as John Badham and Ivan Dixon, Nichols also featured Garner's eventual The Rockford Files co-star Stuart Margolin and included such guest stars as Tom Skerritt, Scatman Crothers, Ralph Waite, Alice Ghostley, and Ricardo Montalban, and was well-known for being one of James Garner's favorite television roles.

Hondo

Ralph Taeger and his faithful canine sidekick Sam hit the road in 1967's Hondo. Based on the 1953 John Wayne drama of the same name--which, in turn, was inspired by Louis L'Amour's sixth novel--the series stars Taeger as a former Confederate officer who lived with the Apaches. Tasked with preventing more violence from occurring between settlers and the remaining tribes, Hondo embarks on a quest to avenge his Indian wife's death, while battling dastardly land-grabbers, nosy reporters, and other outlaws, in the process. Famed movie villain Michael Pate also stars, reprising his big screen role as Apache Chief Vittoro, and the series features such guest stars as Ricky Nelson, Fernando Lamas and Annette Funicello. Noah Beery Jr. (who played James Garner's father in The Rockford Files) co-stars in this series.

Robert Horton - A Man Called Shenandoah

Wagon Train's Robert Horton stars in the well-regarded half hour Western drama A Man Called Shenandoah. Horton stars as a man who wakes up after being brutally attacked, with no memory of who he is or why anyone would want to harm him. Searching for clues to his past life, the man dubbed "Shenandoah" travels through the desert, running afoul of lynch mobs, dodging false charges, facing off against violent criminals, and doling out Old West justice along the way. In addition to Horton, the series boasted a number of impressive guest stars, including Oscar® winners Cloris Leachman, Martin Landau, and George Kennedy, and nominees Bruce Dern, Sally Kellerman, Nina Foch, John Ireland, and Arthur O'Connell.


Candace Cameron Bure - The View

ABC's The View is ramping up for a season unlike any other with more opinions and new points of view when the talk show returns on Tuesday, September 8 for Season 19. Joy Behar, celebrated performer and original co-host of The View returns, actress Candace Cameron Bure, known to television audiences for decades on the enormously successful sitcom Full House and the upcoming Fuller House, and Paula Faris, Good Morning America Weekend co-anchor, join moderator Whoopi Goldberg, Raven-Symoné and Michelle Collins as co-hosts. Back to Candace, she is of course known to millions worldwide from her role as "D.J. Tanner" on the iconic family sitcom Full House, Cameron Bure continues to flourish in the entertainment industry as a role model to women of all ages. She is currently filming her leading role in the highly anticipated new series Fuller House, where she is reprising her role as 'D.J.' She is the author of two best-selling books, "Reshaping It All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness" and "Balancing It All."
