The Wests are a one-family crime wave with a proud tradition of fraud and petty theft - until now. 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. But 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.
Outrageous Fortune is a bold comedy-drama about a dysfunctional but loving family that can't stay out of trouble, especially siblings Van, who only wants to be like his dad; 18-year-old Pascalle, who wants to be Rachel Hunter; and anguished 15-year-old film buff Loretta, who is blackmailing her teacher for having an affair with older brother Jethro, and remains ever-scornful of her blonde, beautiful sister. A daring, fresh series by turns bawdy, action-packed, satirical and trashy, this is cutting-edge contemporary drama.
I absolutely luv this New Zealand drama! There are some excellent New Zealand actors in this show. Season 1 will get you hooked as it did me. It is not your average New Zealand drama as it is based around a family of criminals who decide to go straight after the father lands himself in jail. The family contains the wife/mother Cheryl and her 4 children: Jethro, Van, Pascalle and Loretta, and they each bring their own unique drama to the screens. They are definitely worthwhile to watch.
