"Lawman" is a western television series originally telecast from 1958 to 1962 starring John Russell as Marshal Dan Troop and Peter Brown as Deputy Johnny McKay. Set in Laramie, Wyoming, the action often centered on the Birdcage Saloon, owned by Lily Merrill (Peggie Castle). The half hour show often was of high quality due to the camaraderie of the cast members, guest stars, and several experienced directors such as Stuart Heisler and writers such as Clair Huffaker.

Produced by William T. Orr at the Warner Bros. studio, the show was broadcast on the ABC network along with several other Warner Bros. westerns during the same period, including "Maverick" with James Garner, Jack Kelly, and Roger Moore, "Cheyenne" with Clint Walker, "Sugarfoot" with Will Hutchins, "Bronco" with Ty Hardin, and "Colt .45" with Wayde Preston. Characters from "Lawman" were either mentioned in or appeared on several of these other Warner Bros. western series in crossovers; one example is the "Maverick" episode "Hadley's Hunters". Famed acting instructor Eric Morris was also a cast member.
