The original one-hour special debuts Sunday, March 10th at 6:00 PM ET

(Indian Land, SC – January 4, 2024) – Top-rated Western-themed cable network INSP has announced the premiere date for Legends of the Pony Express, the second in a series of specials under the network’s new Western anthology series Legends Of.  The one-hour special, which highlights the death-defying adventures of the most legendary riders of the Pony Express, makes its exclusive network premiere on Sunday, March 10th at 6:00 PM EST. The announcement comes from Craig Miller, VP of Original Programming for INSP.

“Although the Pony Express was only operational for approximately 19 months, it left a lasting impact on the legacy of the Old West,” said Miller. “In this special we pay tribute to the young men who risked their lives to deliver the mail across nearly 2,000 miles of treacherous terrain on the Western frontier. Along the way, we share some of the lesser-known facts and water-cooler trivia about the specialized horses, saddles, station houses, and employees that made the unique mail delivery system work.”

Legends of the Pony Express features high-action dramatizations and expert commentary that pays homage to an iconic symbol of the Old West that has been memorialized in dime novels, wild west shows, Western artwork, and classic Western movies. The special is formatted around a re-enactment of legendary showman Buffalo Bill, as he regales viewers with tales from his days on the Pony Express, when he and other young riders found adventure and fame, racing across the West to deliver the mail on time.

Legends of the Pony Express, produced by Big Time Decent Productions, races into America’s living rooms on Sunday, March 10th at 6:00 PM ET on INSP. Please reach out for further details or to receive an exclusive screener.
