The Alone Rangers

Web, 2020

This deadpan "rural chat show" combines endless put-downs, silly contests and occasional songs about sheep. American-based comedian Rhys Darby returned to Aotearoa with his family in early 2020 because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The comical web series was made at his Matakana property, while he stayed with a bubble of 10 friends and family. Joining Darby's chief ranger Bill Napier are comedian turned theatre actor Jonno Roberts, and comedian Jamie Bowen. Dean Cornish (Intrepid Journeys) directed all six episodes.
