Ride with the Devil

Television, 2007

Six-part drama Ride with the Devil explores Auckland's boy racer culture — as experienced by a young Chinese car fanatic. Lin (Andy Wong) befriends ex-con car expert Kurt (Westside's Xavier Horan), but they both end up in court after a street race crash. Longtime petrolhead Murray Keane created the show (which won a Qantas TV Award for its camerawork). Keane first made a pilot called Burnout, but the project won funding from NZ On Air's Innovation Initiative after he added an Asian family into the story. Ride with the Devil screened late on Tuesday nights on TV2.
