WHY FINDING WESTLEY?
Westley: I told you I would always come for you. Why didn't you wait for me?
Buttercup: Well... you were dead.
Westley: Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while.
Buttercup: I will never doubt again.
Westley: There will never be a need.
The duologue written above, from the cult movie The Princess Bride (one of our favourite cults of all time), highlights the uncompromising belief felt by the lead character Westley, in True Love. Hence, our series title Finding Westley, he is our super hero of True Love.
WHY TRUE LOVE STORIES?
People have killed for it, died for it, gained it, lost it and gained it back again. Some have had to work very hard to experience it and others have not had it happen at all, yet (we say optimistically). As human beings, we are always searching for it – even if we cunningly pretend we are not. It involves naturally occurring amphetamines, genetically determined instinctual behaviour, complex neurochemical processes and of course pheromones. So with over 2.2 billion* single people in the world, it should be easy right? We talk to the people that have had it and see what pearls of wisdom we can glean and share.

WHY A WEB SERIES?
We think there are not enough positive, humorous, and intelligent True Love stories around, and we believe this topic is something everyone has some experience and connection with. If the huge increase in dating sites, love advice and weirdo love activities are anything to go by, so do you. We find it inspiring, and amusing, and in our research, we have uncovered many wonderful stories. There is scope for many more but we have chosen local locations and local stories for the first few episodes. To produce that ‘best in show' on a budget, we need your help…thus we have a 'pledge' page and a 'goodies' page. Please do participate and help if you can. You can be part of building your very own TV channel on a noble world wide topic!
