Wild Boys is an Australian television drama series that premiered on the Seven Network in September 2011. The show is produced by Endemol and stars Daniel MacPherson, Zoe Ventoura, Michael Dorman, Jeremy Sims, and David Field. It is set in the late 1800s in the Australian outback and follows the adventures of two bushrangers, Jack Keenan (MacPherson) and Dan Sinclair (Dorman), as they try to evade the law and build their reputation.

Jack and Dan are two very different men. Jack is the leader of the Wild Boys, while Dan is the muscle. Jack is a charmer with a quick wit and an eye for the ladies, while Dan is taciturn and more comfortable with his fists than his words. They are joined on their adventures by other bushrangers, including the knowledgeable and cunning Captain Gunpowder (Sims) and the young and brash Mick (Samuel Johnson).

The show is action-packed and full of excitement, as the Wild Boys rob banks, stagecoach robberies, and fight other bushrangers. But it's also a character-driven drama that explores the relationships between the characters and delves into their backgrounds and motivations. Jack, in particular, has a complex backstory that is slowly revealed over the course of the series.

One of the main themes of the show is the clash between the bushrangers and the law. The Wild Boys are constantly on the run from the police, who are led by the determined and ruthless Governor Fletcher (Field). He will stop at nothing to capture the Wild Boys and bring them to justice, even if it means breaking the law himself. But the show also explores the corrupt nature of the law and the unfair treatment of the indigenous population, who are often caught in the middle of the conflict.

Wild Boys is also a love story, with Jack and the local schoolteacher Emma (Ventoura) sharing a complicated relationship. Emma is engaged to the local police sergeant, but she can't resist Jack's charms. Their relationship is full of tension and forbidden desire, as they both try to navigate their feelings for each other while also trying to stay true to themselves.

The show is beautifully shot, with stunning landscapes and detailed period costumes that transport the viewer back to the late 1800s. The music is also a standout feature, with a mix of traditional Australian folk songs and original instrumental pieces that perfectly capture the mood and atmosphere of the show.

Overall, Wild Boys is a thrilling and entertaining television series that combines action, drama, and romance into one package. The characters are well-developed and engaging, the storyline is full of twists and turns, and the setting is breathtaking. It's a show that will keep you on the edge of your seat and leave you wanting more.

Wild Boys is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (13 episodes). The series first aired on September 4, 2011.
