Find Me a Māori Bride - First Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2015

I mean, I'm part-Māori even though I really don't look it. Even doing stand-up, people would say, 'well who's this white guy doing Māori impersonations?'
– Cohen Holloway on playing a 'plastic Māori', to Stuff writer Sienna Yates, 3 May 2015
[Cohen Holloway and Matariki Whatarau] perfectly capture the anxiety of rejecting tradition, yet desperately trying to please older generations. It's not only a hotbed for humour, but takes a universal feeling and gives it a New Zealand context.
– Alex Casey in an NZ Herald review of the show, 27 May 2015
Hey our people once were warriors not uptight accountants who fall apart every time they see their sister's titties!
– Crystal (Amanda Billing) to George (Matariki Whatarau), while breastfeeding her child
What I hope we'll get across is that the culture isn't behind closed doors. There are times when I have felt it's too difficult to get in there, but it's actually obvious. It's right there, and there are people really wanting to share it with you, and there's absolutely no reason why you should be afraid.
– Director Kiel McNaughton, to Stuff writer Sienna Yates, 3 May 2015
