Description

Welcome to Chapter 2 in the story of how the Wests evolved into the family we know and still love… We left the Wests at the end of series one in 1979. Rita had been arrested for the shooting of a gang member, a Horseman, at the Galleria. Westside 2 begins as a mirror image of the first series, with a West coming out after a stint in prison - this time it’s Rita. She’s a convicted criminal now, out to reclaim the life she had and carve out her own successful crime career. But things have moved on in her absence, her son, Wolf, has gotten older and become a man with a plan for his own life. Series one of Westside jumped through time at a frenetic rate of knots. This time around things slow down to focus on the week-to-week existence of West Auckland’s #1 crime family and explore an intense period of New Zealand’s social history. Ted, Rita and their crew are now entering a time in which their political differences are more pertinent than ever - as the 1981 Springbok tour divides living rooms all over New Zealand, the ideological clash between left and right ends up on the streets and behind barbed wire. From the pen of James Griffin, Westside 2 explores the fates and fortunes of our nation and in the process bestows a whole new generation with access to 1981 New Zealand. 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. A consistent ratings winner, the show achieved cult status and critical acclaim at home and abroad and to date has won more than 50 awards.
