You already know and love the New Zealand comedy exports of Flight of the Conchords and Taika Waititi and now, you ought to get to acquaint yourself with the charm of New Zealand’s newest comedy star making her way round the world, Rose Matafeo.
She dazzled some LA crowds a few weeks back and now has been set up with her own TV series, Starstruck, following a down on her luck Rose who finds that she just slept with a movie star. The show will play both in the UK and the US via HBO Max and BBC Three, a transatlantic distribution model that seems to be happening more and more (ex. Fleabag, Catastrophe, Killing Eve) and proving very fruitful.
In any case, we’re looking forward to see Rose make her TV debut in the US via her own show.
