How would you like to see the glory days of Ted West in a new drama spinoff from South Pacific Pictures’ Outrageous Fortune? A prequel if you like.
When a show such as Outrageous Fortune comes to an end, as it will with its sixth and final season on TV3 in 2010, they leave enormous holes in the television landscape. Characters who have become so loved and, in many cases, identified with are taken like a close relative and the mourning that ensues can be heart wrenching. Thankfully though, writers and producers seem to becoming more and more adept at reinventing the stories and giving charatcters an extended lease on life.
Being able to take a highly successful and award winning show and develop a new series based on back story would immediately have a fanbase, and particularly with New Zealand, the reason to fund a pilot and first season.
The idea that we could get to see Ted in his prime would be, no doubt, highly entertaining. What do you think? Which character should get an Outrageous Fortune spinoff and what should the story be about?
