  • Lancer is the story of a rancher who struggles to hang onto his vast holdings in California's San Joaquin Valley with the help of his two sons and his ward. Scott, whose mother died in childbirth, is Murdoch Lancer's older son. He was raised by his maternal grandfather in Boston. Younger son Johnny was taken from his father by his Mexican mother when he was only around two. He grew up around the Mexican border and went by the name "Johnny Madrid", under which he earned a reputation as a fast gun. Deservedly so apparently, as men from his past occasionally showed up to cause problems for Johnny and his newfound family. Teresa O'Brien, daughter of Murdoch's murdered ranch foreman is Murdoch's ward and a surrogate sister to the two boys.

  • Murdoch Lancer is one of the wealthiest and most powerful ranchers in California. His two sons by different mothers, fiery-tempered half-Indian Johnny and soft-spoken college-graduate Scott, have returned home to help Murdoch run the ranch, where the Lancer family frequently becomes involved with various bad guys and adventures. Teresa was Murdoch's pretty ward.

  • "Bonanza" clone about the Lancer family and its ranch.
