Kerry Warkia

Producer, Actor

In 2014 Kerry Warkia was awarded the WIFT Woman to Watch Award for her work in new media. Warkia has produced a number of high profile web series, including wannabe famous comedy Auckland Daze, Flat3, and pioneering children's web series Nia’s Extra Ordinary Life. Warkia runs company Brown Sugar Apple Grunt Productions with her partner Kiel McNaughton. The pair originated Māori Television hit Find Me a Māori Bride, plus a trio of ambitious anthology features that put women front and centre: Waru, Vai and (next on the list) Kāinga. Warkia also has credits as an actor and writer.

Find Me A Māori Bride is almost certainly going to be the best Kiwi comedy on television this year […] Kerry Warkia and Kiel McNaughton have done a fantastic job. Mike Kilpatrick, reviewing Find Me a Māori Bride for Stuff, 15 June 2015
