Grant Morris


After cutting his teeth on South Pacific Television soap Radio Waves, Christchurch-born Grant Morris went on to write comedy (The Billy T James Show) and children’s classic Count Homogenized — plus help create drama series Heroes and Inside Straight. Morris has continued to write since relocating to the United States in 1985, and is now a DJ on radio station It's New Orleans.

There were no other TV channels to watch so there wasn’t much pressure on anybody to perform — which was maybe why the shows were by and large pretty good. Grant Morris, on writing for Kiwi television in the 70s and early 80s
