The Rousters

The Rousters

Chad Everett stars as a carnival rouster, which seems to be sort of like a bouncer in a bar.
Everett plays Wyatt Earp III, great-grandson to the legendary western lawman. Needless to say, that name invites trouble all by itself.
Everett's problems are complicated by his mother (played a little too broadly by Maxine Stuart) and
his brother (wonderfully wacky as portrayed by Jim Varney). Mama can't forget the good old days, when an Earp Buntline Special ruled the west. Her second son, not too bright, is a con man and an inventor.
Miss Stuart and Varney have set themselves up as bounty hunters, tracking down criminals and deadbeats for a fee Everett bails them out of trouble regularly.
Rounding out the cast are Mimi Rogers as Everett's girlfriend and Timothy Gibbs as his son. Country singer Hoyt Axton plays the carnival owner, but his role seems limited to a chat now and then with Everett. "Rousters" comes from Stephen J. Cannell, whose big hit 1982 season was "A-Team." This is the same genre, but not done nearly as well.
