Did You Know?


Originally a two hour MGM TV movie-pilot, with the first two hour pilot airing on CBS-TV, followed weekly by four one hour films. New permanent and swing sets were built at the MGM Culver City Studios, in December 1979, going into immediate production as a CBS mid season replacement. The fifth installment, filming the first four days production, with cast and crew on location at a Lake Piru auto-racetrack, MGM was notified that CBS axed the low rated series. The next day, upon cast and crew returning from location to the studio for stage filming, which was on schedule, MGM ceased production without further filming. Instead, a spontaneous wrap party occurred that night ending the production with all stage sets dressed without a camera roll. MGM Executives regretted not completing the last show when the production was marketed as a syndicated series in Australia and Japan. With six installments, "Beyond Westworld's" television viewing foreign syndicated market should have brought a greater financial return for MGM Television. See more »

Great Sci-Fi t.v. series, but short lived.
31 July 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I am lucky enough to be able to say I've seen this rare tv series. It was a great series, Quaid was always up to no good with the Delos robots as Moore tried to keep them at bay. The hot looking Connie Selleca was added to the show after the pilot but that couldn't even save this show from the corporate axe and the annals of obscurity. They made six episodes of 'Beyond Westworld' but only four were actually shown on tv. A guy on e-bay was selling this show complete with the two unaired episodes included and was raking people over the coals per copy(some over 30.00 USA). The late Art Sholl did the aircraft/chopper flying stunts for the show. He worked on hundreds of tv shows, films and advertising projects before crashing into the ocean filming a action sequence for the popular 80's movie 'Top Gun'. Thumbs up for this rare show.
