Young Dan'l Boone
This series about the adventures of 20-something Daniel Boone (played by Rick Moses) lasted only four weeks. Jeremy was in the premiere episode, landing the role after Jeremy Kemp had to leave to return to England. The show was filmed entirely in Tennessee, even though the action is set in Kentucky.
In the show, Daniel Boone is out to blaze a trail through the wilderness, through the foreboding Cumberland Gap. What he doesn't take into account is that such a trail would open the territory to settlers -- just what the French don't want. Their efforts to thwart young Daniel Boone sets up the pattern of the action for future episodes. In the first episode, the French hire a killer -- Langford -- to kill young Dan'l. Langford waits in ambush, aided by a band of Shawnee trackers. However, Boone is able to thwart to the attack.
A New York Times review noted
that despite the overall nonviolence of the show, "The British villain,
played with rolling eyes and a curious flirtatiousness by Jeremy Brett,
is allowed to plunge to his death while scaling a mountain."
