The TV Pilot for “Westside” (previously titled “Venice”), a proposed ABC soap “about the haves and the have-not’s of California’s most seductive city, Venice” wrapped production last week after staging a hanging and bonfire at the Venice sign on Windward Thursday evening.

The Romeo and Juliet-ish pilot stars Odette Annable as Sophie Nance, the “owner of the hippest boutique in Venice”, who “falls in love with the offspring of her family’s archenemies”, Chris Carver. Carver, played by Luke Bracey, has just gotten out of prison after a 6 year stint for dealing marijuana.
Director McG informs the actors what their “motorvation” is.
Hopefully the pilot ends up on YouTube one day!
