Deepwater Haven - First Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1993

A big budget New Zealand-French-Australian co-production, kidult series Deepwater Haven screened on TV2. It followed the fortunes of Waitemata Harbour tugboat skipper Jack Wilson (Vince Martin of Beaurepairies advertising fame) and his two kids, Georgie (Jay Saussey) and Peter (Peter Malloch). This opening episode sees Jack struggling to keep his business afloat; the local cafe is burgled; and Peter, marooned at a dry dock while on the run from bullies, is rescued by a street kid (future Pluto singer Milan Borich). Saussey won a NZ Film and TV Award for her role.

Did you tell Mark Paterson that Uncle Ian was on the America’s Cup yacht? We haven't even got an Uncle Ian.
– Georgie (Jay Saussey) to her brother Peter (Peter Malloch)
