Series Final

Friday, October 10th at 9:30pm

Over the last six weeks they have made us laugh, cry and feel every emotion in-between, but unfortunately the time has come to say goodbye to the most politically incorrect series on television, A Thousand Apologies finals on Friday, October 10th at 9:30pm on 3.

Over the season, A Thousand Apologies has addressed the diversity of the pan-Asian experience in contemporary New Zealand. Edgy, irreverent, and occasionally rude, the series has satirised stereotypes and situations that are familiar to many New Zealanders: from beleaguered homestay students to overqualified Indian parking wardens, possessive Indian mothers to overachieving Chinese students.

Created by a group of pan-Asian writers and directors who formed the A Thousand Apologies Collective, the series has certainly proven to be a groundbreaking comedy from an Asian New Zealander point of view. But where did they get the inspiration for the show?

“We dug deep into our selves and families and environment to laugh at what makes us different and same,” says A Thousand Apologies producer Shuchi Kothari of the groups inspiration for the offbeat skits featured in the series.

“Without the strait-jacket of political correctness, we’ve drawn upon our everyday experiences to explore what it’s like to be among the country’s fastest growing minority group,” she adds.

But when asked what tricks does the team have stored for the hilarious season finale, all Kothari had to say was; “Don’t be afraid to laugh. We won’t report you,” being careful not to give anything away.

So make sure to tune in and find out what she’s referring to when A Thousand Apologies concludes on Friday, October 10th at 9:30pm on 3.
