Being Eve: Starting soon on TVNZ 6


Fridays at 5pm (Starts 5 October), on TVNZ 6

Eve observes. Eve philosophises. Eve tries not to get involved. But sometimes, Eve just can’t help herself!

This original Kiwi comedy-drama is a fresh, up-beat look at early teen life seen through the eyes of 15-year-old Eve.

Eve is the voice of this series literally.

Her thoughts are heard loud and clear as she muses either directly to camera or in voiceover – on what it means to be a teenager today and where she fits into all of this.

Media savvy teenagers are always questioning reality and looking for something new. Eve asks big questions, small questions, all questions.

However, the show doesn’t impose moral issues on its young viewers, nor does it patronize them. Eve simply helps them make sense of the confusing adult world around them.

Being Eve provides everyone with the opportunity to observe and laugh, with cool characters they can identify with.

The show was a finalist in the International Emmy Awards 2002 (Children & Young People), Gold World Medal Winner (Teen Programmes) in the New York Festivals 2002, and received the 2002 TV Guide New Zealand Television Awards for Best Drama Series, Best Contribution Soundtrack and Best Contribution Design.
