So I'm going to take a decade-by-decade look at some of the obscure series that have prominent Indian characters. First, from the 1950s:
Broken Arrow (TV series)
The show ran on ABC in prime time from 1956 through 1958 on Tuesdays at 9 PM Eastern time. Repeat episodes were shown by ABC on Sunday afternoons during the 1959-60 season. Selected repeats were then shown once again in prime time (on Sunday evenings) during the summer of 1960.
