New Zealand’s best-loved comedy drama Outrageous Fortune continues on Arena in 2009. In the fourth series, Cheryl battles the forces of Wolf to defend her kids and castle, but as family tensions erupt, the worst villain may be the enemy within …
Outrageous Fortune is a comedy-drama series about the wrong sort of people trying to do the right thing when the rewards for going straight are neither immediate nor bountiful. It is a bold, fresh series which is by turns bawdy, action-packed, satirical and trashy – but only ever a heartbeat away from reality. The idea of a former crime family trying to go straight, the tension this generates between matriarch and patriarch, and the contemporary moral questions the show poses, all provide a touchstone for 21st century audiences everywhere.
Stars Robyn Malcolm as Cheryl West, Antony Starr as twins Van and Jethro West, Grant Bowler as Wolfgang West, Siobhan Marshall as Pascalle West, Antonia Prebble as Loretta West, Frank Whitten as Grandpa Ted West, Tammy Davis as Munter, Kirk Torrance as Wayne Judd, Nicole Whippy as Kasey, Tyler-Jane Mitchel as Sheree and Craig Hall as Nicky.
