Debuting on 5 March 1980, this Sci-Fi drama series from CBS was a spin-off from the 1973 film Westworld.
John Moore (Jim McMullan) and Pam Williams (Connie Sellecca) were security agents for Delos, a giant corporation which created robots for its amusement parks.
Simon Quaid (James Wainwright) was a bright scientist who had created the superhuman androids but somewhere along the line his loyalties had changed and he embarked on a quest for world domination by replacing prominent figures with his creations.
Professor Joseph Oppenheimer (William Jordan) was Quaid’s former boss who summoned Moore and Williams to help him stop the maniac Quaid and his army of robots.
The series failed to develop an audience and by April 1980 Beyond Westworld took a one-way trip to oblivion after only three of the five filmed episodes had aired.
