The West Side is an urban western, created by Ryan Koo and Zack Lieberman. Set in a unique, alternate universe, it melds together elements of two disparate film genres: the grit of an urban setting with the tradition of the American Western. The show is presented free on the internet as a contemporary version of the serial novel; new chapters in the dozen-episode storyline will be posted as quickly as they can be produced. Please subscribe to be notified of new episodes, or read the production blog for updates on the show’s progress (and pitfalls).

The West Side is currently on hiatus.
