The Rousters is an adventure drama that aired on NBC.

Wyatt Earp III works as a bouncer for the traveling Sladetown Carnival, run by "Cactus Jack" Slade. Wyatt doesn't care for his embarrassing name or the legacy it represents, but his shotgun-toting mother Amanda wants to carry on the "family tradition" of keeping law and order through bounty hunting.

Wyatt's brother Evan has a penchant for con artistry and bungled repair-work; this character is mostly comic relief. Slade's lion-taming daughter Ellen is dating Wyatt and tutoring his teenage son Michael.
