Joel McCrea stars as Texas Ranger Jace Pearson in this thirty minute western adventure series. The shows are all reenactments of incidents from Texas Ranger history.

The thirty-minute show, sponsored by Wheaties, ran on Saturday nights at 930 for three months. In October, the show switched to Sunday evenings, eventually settling into the six oclock time slot.
