WIFTer projects win NZOA funding

Posted Tuesday 12 Dec 2017

Brokenwood-Mysteries
We're excited for Kelly Martin, Robin Scholes, Kim Harrop and Kerry Warkia whose projects received funding in NZ On Air's December funding round - the last NZOA funding round of the year. Martin's project Brokenwood Mysteries (starring Neill Rea, pictured above left and Fern Sutherland, above right), New Zealand's unique murder mystery series, is returning to Prime for season 5, and Martin is also working on the psychological thriller The Bad Seed with Robin Scholes for TVNZ 1. Meanwhile, it's great to see women involved in comedy: Warkia's project Darryl, A Coast To Coast Story will feature on TVNZ On Demand, and Harrop's Fresh Eggs, co-scripted by Nick Ward, is a black comedy for prime time on TVNZ 2.
