The Jaquie Brown Diaries - Brown Sweat (Episode Three)

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2008

M
Mature
A local sitcom that doesn't suck.
– The Listener
The Jaquie Brown Diaries is just the kind of odd little nugget you hope some off-center cable channel is going to dig up and share. It’s a satirical New Zealand sitcom about the petty jealousies and awkward encounters of a grandiose TV news personality. A little bit of local fame has left our heroine Jaquie Brown with a rather warped self-image and a tetchy ego. In a way that vaguely recalls the HBO classic The Comeback, her self-delusions are delightfully cringe-worthy.
– Boston Globe review
The comic timing and the dialogue are edgily perfect.
– Dominion Post review
