In Wrangler, Evers played Pitcairn, a wrangler who roamed the Old West, finding adventures along the way. However, Wrangler did not have much of a chance to find adventure because the series lasted only for six episodes. It was a summer replacement series for The Ford Show Starring Tennessee Ernie Ford, but did not garner high enough ratings to become a full-fledged series.
"Wrangler" stood out among westerns chiefly because it was the first of its genre to be videotaped rather than filmed. It earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Electronic Camerawork in 1961.
