The Key West TV show was a 60 minute drama series with a comedy twist that aired on the FOX Network. Seamus O'Neill wanted to be a great writer like his hero, "Ernest Hemingway". When the factory worker suddenly became a rich man, he used his money to move to Key West, Florida where Hemingway did some of his best writing. His experiences with the varied type of people you'd expect to find in Key West and the tropical ambiance provided an enjoyable viewing experience.

Key West Trivia
Key West nearly made it to a second season. Some scripts for season 2 were actually written and a few scenes were even taped.
At the young age of 13, Fisher Stevens (Seamus O'Neill) moved to New York City to pursue an acting career. It took 3 years, but at age 16 he got a major role in the 1981 film, "The Burning". Along with many other roles and his starring role on Key West, Fisher also starred on the series, "Early Edition".
Seamus O'Neill got rich by winning the lottery. That made for an great storyline. You know ... the average guy who's suddenly rich and dumps his old, boring life for a new, more exciting one! Then, in the second episode, Seamus got his lottery check for a lousy $32.59! He had many outstanding student loans and the lottery commission deducted them from his winnings! Many fans believe that if the writers had left him rich, Key West would have been a hit.
