While most people hunkered down during the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown, Rhys Darby and friends made this comedy show "from the bush beside the shed". Darby and family moved back to their Matakana home to ride out the pandemic, and invited some friends. In this episode, intrepid park rangers Bill Napier (Darby), Australian Ron Bradman (Kiwi Jonno Roberts) and lazy trainee Jason Chaseman (Jamie Bowen) trade insults, and endure a tragic game called 'what tree am I?'. Dean Cornish (Intrepid Journeys) directs; Darby's teenage son Finn helped on camera and editing.
It was made with no funding, no budget, and only the resources we had on hand at the house — plus whatever I shoved in my suitcase when I was leaving Los Angeles.– Director Dean Cornish
