Colorado is an American television series broadcast between 1978 and 1979. It is based on the novel of the same name of James A. Michener, which tells the story of the city of Centennial, located in the state of Colorado. The series follows the history of the city and its inhabitants over the centuries, starting with the first European settlers who arrived in the region in the 18th century until the 1970s.

The series is known to be one of the first television productions to use special effects to reproduce historical events, such as battles between Indians and settlers. It was also welcomed for its representation of the life of the different communities which populated the Colorado region, especially the Indians, the European settlers, the black slaves, the miners and the cowboys.

The casting of the series includes known actors such as Richard Chamberlain, Michael Ansara, Robert Conrad, Chad Everett and Barbara Carrera. The series was produced by John Wilder and produced by Edward Zwick and Daniel Petrie. It was broadcast for two seasons, with a total of 26 episodes.

Although Colorado was not a resounding success during its broadcast on television, it aroused an interest in the history of Colorado and was considered an important contribution to television literature of the time. She is still watched today by lovers of history and television.
