Television, 2004–2009

This animated TV comedy series follows five kids growing up in a grungy Auckland suburb. With a fearless, un-PC wit and Simpsons-esque celebrity cameos, it managed to be prime time and (mostly) family-friendly. Producer Elizabeth Mitchell got the idea for the show after witnessing the brazen, poly-saturated comedy of theatre group The Naked Samoans. During five seasons on TV3, it won three Best Comedy gongs at the NZ Screen Awards, and a Qantas Award for Ant Sang's production design. Naked Samoan David Fane relives the bro'Town story here, as does writer Rachel Davies.
