Friends - for 40 year olds
1 September 2011 | by clashjamSee all my reviews

A wonderful and refreshing comedy/drama from NZ that centers around 5 friends that meet once a week for quiz night at a local bar. All of them are single, yet dealing with the aftermath of either failed relationships and or on the hunt for that one great love. Well written with some superb performances make this a great escape. The assorted pub quiz questions from a myriad of categories also challenging. Not being a Kiwi, its great to learn about New Zealand and see the beauty of Auckland (and Te Kuiti)

Look for this show to be exported to countries around the globe including Canada, England and the US. Produced by South Pacific, let's hope they are selling it at MIPCOM.
