Here's more great home-grown viewing involving WIFT NZ members! The Pact screens from Monday 18 October on TVNZ OnDemand. The was created by Natalie Medlock and Harry McNaughton, and co-produced by Jo Raj with Harry under his Koha production company. It stars Irene Wood, Ian Mune, Bronwyn Bradley, Kirk Torrance, Timmie Cameron, Fasitua Amosa, and Jessica Joy Wood.
The logline is for the series is:
‘When the head of a family is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, and chooses euthanasia, their family is forced to question the value of life – both theirs, and their own.’
Jo says The Pact was filmed earlier this year with delays caused by the challenging Auckland lockdown. "We’re very proud that our lead cast member Irene Wood is a woman in her 70s, something sadly not seen very often in network drama. Irene told us she felt it was the best work she had done in her entire career."
Ka pai team - looking forward to watching your work!
