Here’s something that may be of interest as an Olympics alternative.
Next week GEM will resume Westside, the NZ prequel to Outrageous Fortune.
The series created by Rachel Lang and James Griffin, stars Antonia Prebble and David de Lautour as Rita and Ted West, parents to Wolf (originally Grant Bowler). Wolf is portrayed here by Reef Ireland (Wentworth, Puberty Blues, Killing Time, Downriver).
The show will generate drama points for Nine, given it is first run. It kicks off with a double episode premiere at 9:30pm Monday on GEM.
This week it was renewed for a third season.
Rita West is reunited with love of her life Ted, but has lost a son. The gloves are off in the war with the Horsemen and there’s a storm in a teacup…actually a whole tea set.
