Westside explores the fates and fortunes of the infamous West family as they march through history.
From the award winning creators of Outrageous Fortune comes a sweeping tale of crime and passion set in 1970s and 1980s New Zealand.
Westside follows the fates and fortunes of legendary safe-cracker Ted West, his fire cracker of a wife, Rita and their criminal genius son, Wolf. Combining real events and the rich folklore of the notorious West family, this is rollicking Kiwi history with a generous serve of outrageous heists, tempestuous romances and poisoned lamingtons.
Westside is a prequel to Outrageous Fortune. Over six seasons between 2005 and 2010. Outrageous Fortune established itself as New Zealand’s most successful television drama series winning ratings and over 50 awards world-wide.
