Comedy series Porters featured an impressive cast: George Henare, Peter Bland (star of Came a Hot Friday), Bill Johnson (Under the Mountain) and Stephen Judd (Bridge to Nowhere) starred as a cynical team of hospital porters who share no love for their boss (Roy Billing). In the hope of lifting the standards of Kiwi comedy, the makers of this 1980s television series invited Emmy-winning American Noam Pitlik (Barney Miller, Taxi) to direct. The series made comedy from hospital romances, missing patients and union representation. Only six episodes were made.
