Joaquin Murrieta was a planned series from 1959.

Goodson and Todman hired the production-writing-directing team of Andrew J. Fenady, Irvin Kershner and Bernard Kowalski in 1959, signing them to a seven-year exclusive contract. Their planned first project was this series, reportedly being made for ABC, who already had plans to air it in Spring 1960.[1]

The project apparently ended before the first script was even written due to the possibility of a lawsuit from a Pennsylvania housewife who claimed that she had done all the original research on the subject and was never paid.[2]

An episode of Branded titled "The Ghost of Murrieta" aired on March 20, 1966. The episode was produced by Andrew J. Fenady.
