Tongue Tied premieres on Maori TV
The new 7-part comedy series Tongue Tied, created by Albert Belz and Tainui Tukiwaho, and written by Albert Belz and Dane Giraud, premieres tonight on Maori TV.
A Greenstone TV production, Tongue Tied is an outrageous new comedy set in a Kura pō. A combustible mix of students try to learn te reo Maori from hapless wanna-be actor Haami Samuels (Pohatu) under the fierce guidance of principal Hihi Smith (Forrester). Turns out the struggle is 'reo.'
An all-star cast including Maaka Pohatu (Wellington Paranormal), Lisa Chappell (McLeod’s Daughters), Grace Palmer and Karl Burnett from Shortland Street and comedians Kura Forrester and Pax Assadi head up the new series.
Keep an ear out for 'Big Aroha' by theSlacks, featured in the series. Ka pai!
