John Goodnight is based on a character created by Luke Perry, who also serves as executive producer.
A once fun-loving lawyer, the now-respectable Circuit Judge John Goodnight (Perry) has become a stickler for the lawbooks with an aversion to arrogant attorneys. Traveling alone through the Wild West, Goodnight is unhappy when he finds himself in a dusty town's courtroom with Lucius Breed (Keenleyside), a malicious prosecutor. Things brighten up for Goodnight when he spots a beautiful girl and realizes she is Callie Bluepoint (Von Pfetten), a former flame from his Chicago days who he learns is now a widow. Before John has much time to preside over Breed's tireless cases or spend more time with Callie, he witnesses a murderous bank robbery by the dangerous masked outlaw Deke Spradling (Grant) and his gang of bandits, who have been terrorizing the town for months
Jumping into the gunfight, John catches only one of the masked riders, a surprisingly young boy named Will (Bright), who he soon learns is Callie's son. Breed and the scared townspeople demand that Will be hanged, but after Callie reveals a powerful secret about Will's identity, John is determined to discover the truth behind the Spradling gang and set Will - and the truth - free.
