Failed remake
21 February 2015 | by dominic-m-730-399600See all my reviews

Scoundrels is an American remake of a New Zealand TV series called Outrageous Fortune which ran in NZ on TV 3 for 6 seasons from 2005-2010. As a New Zealander I felt quite honoured that abc would make it's own version of a New Zealand show. But after seeing the show, I see why it only lasted 8 episodes. It didn't capture the essence of what the NZ producers were going for. The 2 main characters had exactly the same names: Wolfgang 'Wolf' West and Cheryl West but the children had different names. Just goes to show you that it's often hard to beat the original. I would like to know from any US readers if the New Zealand show was ever aired in the states and if it did, how was it received? I personally loved the show so was really looking forward to seeing the American adaptation. Unfortunately the adaptation didn't do well.
