The Outcasts

(1968-1969)

Western

Cast: Don Murray and Otis Young

The Outcasts is a short-lived Western television series, appearing on ABC in the 1968-69 season. The series co-starred Don Murray and Otis Young, and is probably most notable for being the first television Western with a Black co-star and the first bi-racial Western action team. series telling the story of bounty hunter Earl Corey (Murray) who teams up with newly released slave Jemal David (Young) in the 1860's. Several dynamics ran through the show . For one, the two heroes were not friends. They were reluctant partners, both good at bounty hunting, but each needed someone to watch his back. Yet, there were many times when the white man had to decide whether to side with other white men, or to back up his partner. There was also a  subtle rich-poor dichotomy. Earl Corey had lived on a plantation, a rich man, but had lost everything. Jemal David, on the other hand, had been a slave who never owned anything, but now was fairly prosperous. Earl tended to be tense in this 'new' environment, but Jemal took things in stride.One confederate veteran who literally lost everything in the Civil War teams up with an ex-slave who was also a veteran together they learn to get along. In a world that resented and hated both rebels and black they were indeed outcasts. the series also dealt with violence against women, Indians and questioned ethics and morality of post Civil War America, many of which are still relevant today. Don Murray and Otis Young were excellent in their roles.
