When Go Girls first hit our screens we met the adorable newcomer, Alix Bushnell.  I’m excited to see if there’s another star about to be uncovered with this news and it will be interesting to see how the previous seasons are tied together.

A new gang of Go Girls will step in front of the cameras when principal photography commences on series five of the hit local drama next week.

Now that Amy, Britta, Brad, Cody, Olivia and Kevin have successfully navigated their way through the minefield of their 20s, season five will introduce new friends who decide to try and take some control over their lives in an otherwise rather random universe. Continue reading »

Here’s our list of reasons why it shouldn’t be under your tree this Christmas or anywhere else in your house for that matter.

10. It’s probably still broken.  

The custom built platform was supposed to be launched months ago but has been delayed due to “technical problems”.  Is the launch simply exploitation of the spending season or a Christmas miracle? Continue reading »

Spartacus fans will have the chance to snap up a souvenir from the popular show in Auckland this weekend.

Over 5000 props from the Auckland-based series are going under the hammer to mark the conclusion of the show’s production.

“We’ve got a few heads that aren’t joined to bodies, we’ve got a little baby, a horse head – those sort of things that are a bit macabre and you get a bit of a fright when you come across. But everything else is actually really well made,” said James Hogan from Webb’s auction house.

“The team have put a lot of effort into how the props and the sets should look. And all the wooden furniture is really well made – I’d have it at home.” Continue reading »

Pukeko Pictures has finalised a deal to work alongside Chinese production house Grand Entertainment to produce a new global kids TV show.

The Wellington-based company – who created the successful WotoWots series – will work alongside the Chinese production house on Apple Dog’s Adventure, a live-action puppet-based series.

The main character in the series is based on a popular series of Chinese books, which tells the story of a dog with a magical apple growing from the end of its tail that teaches simple life lessons.

“It is not going to employ a lot of people here. It will be fairly small from that aspect but for our purpose it is about understanding the Chinese market, how things are done at a production level, then being able to collaborate with the Chinese on something we actually believe could be a very exciting show,” said Pukeko Pictures chief executive Andrew Smith.
