Redigo is a 15-week Western dramatic series, set on a New Mexico ranch during the early 1960s, which aired over NBC from September 24 to December 31, 1963. It starred Richard Egan as ranch owner Jim Redigo, Roger Davis as Mike the ranch hand, and Elena Verdugo as Gerry. It was the second half-hour season of the previous one-hour series, "Empire", which offered new episodes between September 25, 1962, and May 13, 1963. Both programs were placed on the Tuesday evening schedule against CBS's "The Red Skelton Show". "Redigo" also lost out in the ratings to the ABC military situation comedy "McHale's Navy", starring Ernest Borgnine.

In "Redigo", Egan's character Jim Redigo was no longer the manager of the large Garrett Ranch but the owner of his own smaller spread nearby. The half-hour format made it hard for the program to develop complex characters as had been done in the initial one-hour version of the show.
