Outrageous Fortune
108 x 1hr drama

Over six seasons between 2005-2010, 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 over 50 awards. Back in season one, the Wests were a one-family crime wave with a proud tradition in thievery, larceny and petty crime. When patriarch Wolfgang West is sentenced to four years in jail, his wife Cheryl decides enough is enough; the family are cleaning up their act and going straight. Can the Wests live up to Cheryl's resolve and stay out of crime? It's not easy to be a saint when you have the DNA of a sinner.

Starring: Robyn Malcolm, Grant Bowler, Antony Starr, Siobhan Marshall, Antonia Prebble & Frank Whitten
