The Insiders Guide to Happiness

Television, 2004

The Insiders Guide to Happiness follows the interconnecting lives of eight 20-something characters — one of them dead — as they search for happiness. Dramatic and surreal, the show won acclaim and was a ratings success. An ambitious, chaos theory-derived concept is underpinned by a strong ensemble cast, and stylishly-shot Wellington locations. The Gibson Group series won seven awards at the 2005 NZ Screen Awards, including Best Drama. Later prequel The Insiders Guide to Love also took away a Best Drama Award.
