There was a tv show about a fort, some chaps in red coats and wigs and an Indian hero. I believe the show shared his name. 80s-90s. Probably french indian wars?

Black hawk, Gray shadow, or similar.

Any help appreciated.

The pathfinder?


As the French and Indian Wars rage on, Hawkeye (Kevin Dillon) and those he cares about get caught up along with it. While helping to keep a British fort from falling into the hands of the Crown's enemies, he encounters Mabel Dunham (Laurie Holden) -- a beautiful woman who almost immediately raises the suspicions of Chingachgook (Graham Greene), Hawkeye's Native American father. He warns his son not to trust the whites, but will the youth follow his father's advice or his own heart?
Initial release: 1996
Director: Donald Shebib

Thanks for trying StoneMtnMinis…sadly there are no watch now links for my country. I guess I'll have to try and find it on DVD.

Thanks all.

No, it wasn't a comedy.

Looks like based on the leather stocking novels, with several films and TV adaptations.

94-95 TV show, Hawkeye, looks like it. It's about the right time. It was on late (9-10ish) at night. Definitely a series.

Swamp fox looks interesting.
