The TV series is a reboot of Michael Crichton's classic 1973 film of the same name.

Starring Sir Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Thandie Newton and Evan Rachel Wood, the TV show is set in West World, a Wild West resort populated by robots with human-like appearances and artificial intelligence.

While at the resort, patrons can live out their wildest fantasies -- no matter how questionable or morally reprehensible.

The 10-part series has been created by Jonathan Nolan - brother of Inception director Christopher Nolan - and Lisa Joy, both of whom write and executive produce the show.
