The Eggplant - Full Series

Web (Full Length Episodes) – 2020

When a giant papier-mâché eggplant is found on the rugby field at Hilltop High, an investigation quickly ensues. But, as Principal Morris (Karen O'Leary) and her sidekick (Tammy Davis) interrogate each suspect, they uncover deeper issues affecting the students' lives. Each webisode unveils a different story of one student's unfortunate experience with the internet. The quirky, award-winning web series was created to educate young Kiwis about the dangers of social media and the internet in the digital age. Episode six, which includes bloopers, was followed by a one-off special featuring Jack Tame (episode seven).

...remember, babies are more expensive than condoms.
– Teacher Ms Bell (Angella Dravid) in sex education class, in episode four
