Title Card - The Boys of Twilight

CBS Network
1992
Drama
60 Minutes

Set in the scenic mountain town of Twilight, Utah, the series follows the exploits of two veteran lawmen trying to keep the peace amidst an onslaught of rich and famous who have made their once quiet hamlet a popular destination.

The sheriff of Twilight is Cody McPherson (Richard Farnsworth), a calm, wise, soft spoken fellow while his Deputy Bill Huntoon (Wilfred Brimley) is boisterous and cantankerous. Together, these crusty senior citizens provide security and comfort to the condos and celebrities who now populated their resort town. The license for their 4x4 is 56148.

Other citizens in Twilight included:

  • Louise Fletcher as Genelva McPherson. Cody's wife
  • Amanda McBroom as Mayor Suzanne Troxell
  • Ben Browder as Deputy Tyler Clare, the preppy nephew of the mayor who faints whenever he hears a loud sound. He wants to modernize the force, but old-school Cody and Bill have other thoughts on the matter.
  • Bessy, Bill's dog
