Pulling Moves

Show Summary

Welcome to the Pulling Moves guide at TV.com. Set and filmed entirely in West Belfast, Pulling Moves centres on the lives of four friends as they pull dodgy scams in order to secure money and avoid legitimate work. The series follows Wardrobe (Simon Delaney), Ta (Ciaran McMenamin), Shay (Ciaran Nolan) and Darragh (Kevin Elliott), as they spend their time ducking and diving, wheeling and dealing and dreaming up new ideas to make them rich. They take on everything from dognapping Shih Tzus to organising the biggest whip-lash scam in Belfast's impressive league-table of personal injury claims. The lads operate in the underbelly of West Belfast society - a city within a city with a law and moral code of its own. Bucking authority is applauded and the local 'shebeen', with its surreal cast of characters, is the place where many of their schemes take form. The four lads can (usually) depend on each other when everything around them is falling apart. But there is one important aspect of their existence they cannot control - the women in their life. They are a source of pleasure and fear, of delight and frustration. The 10-part series was written by Belfast-born writer Pearse Elliott.
