In an unspecified time in the future, Westworld, one of six theme parks owned and operated by Delos Inc., allows guests to experience the American Old West in an environment populated by "hosts", androids programmed to fulfill the guests' every desire. The hosts, who are nearly indistinguishable from humans, follow a predefined set of intertwining narratives but have the ability to deviate from these narratives based on interactions they have with guests. The hosts repeat their multi-day narratives anew each cycle. At the beginning of each new cycle (typically following the host's "death"), each host has its memories of the previous period erased. This continues hundreds or thousands of times until the host is decommissioned or repurposed for use in other narratives. For guests' safety, hosts' programming prevents them from physically harming human guests; this allows guests nearly unlimited freedom to engage without retribution in any activity they choose with the hosts, including rape and murder. Staff - situated in a control center called "The Mesa", which is connected to the park through vast underground facilities - oversee daily operations, develop new narratives, and perform repairs on hosts as necessary. Unbeknownst to the staff, members of a small group of hosts have retained memories of their past "lives" and are learning from their experiences as they gradually start to achieve sentience.
The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television, Bad Robot Productions, HBO Entertainment, Kilter Films and Jerry Weintraub Productions (season 1).
The average duration of each episode is 57 - 91 minutes. Country of origin: United States. Original language: English.
