Melody Rules

Television, 1995–1996

This 1990s sitcom revolves around a conscientious travel agent who attempts to rein in her wayward siblings. Mild-mannered Melody (Nightline host Belinda Todd, oddly cast against type) is aided and abetted by her ditzy air hostess friend, a hapless co-worker and a nosey neighbour. Despite intense work by the scriptwriters, hopes that Melody Rules would be a flagship title for fledgling channel TV3 were soon dashed. Careers suffered, some of the cast escaped overseas, and Melody Rules became a byword for failure in New Zealand television (as did The Club Show).
