Awarded were the 74th Primetime Emmys (Midday, Tuesday, September 13, Vibe)
Can Melanie Lynskey take home the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series and make history as the first Kiwi actor? Although it won’t be simple competing with Jodie Comer, Laura Linney, Sandra Oh, Reese Witherspoon, and Zendaya, the 45-year-old New Plymouth native has gained a legion of new fans and praises for her portrayal of Shauna Sadecki in Yellowjackets.
Succession, The White Lotus, Ted Lasso, Dopesick, Severance, Squid Game, and Only Murders in the Building are a few of the programs predicted to take center stage that night. Then, starting at 7:30 pm, a primetime encore presentation will be shown.
Good evening, Kia Ora (8.40 pm, Tuesday, September 13, Three)
A documentary about Kiwi newsreader Mike McRoberts’ quest to retrieve the Mori linguistic competence was taken from his ancestors a generation ago.
It is marketed as a tale of isolation, trauma, reconnection, and reawakening. Still, it is also an intensely personal journey that examines what it means to be a Mori in advanced Aotearoa.
No Maori Language (8.40 pm, Tuesday, September 13, TVNZ 1)
This documentary examined the evolution of te Reo Mori in Aotearoa. It was developed to mark the 50th anniversary of the Mori language petition submitted on Parliament’s steps in 1972.
It aims to reveal the legacy of te Reo Mori since the arrival of the Westerners and explore the enduring vitality of a language that was suppressed for generations, when it was the dominant language between Tangata Whenua and the early colonists, to its gradual decline due to assimilation policies, through to the modern-day urban renewal efforts.
In conjunction (8.30 pm, Wednesday, September 14, Sky Movies Premiere)
This two-hander, which won the TV Bafta for best single drama in May, is best described as a spiky, biting, black, and occasionally bleak comedy that gives Kiwis a very different perspective on Covid’s early impact.
While imprisoned with their son, 10, James McAvoy and Sharon Horgan, a profoundly stressed couple, reevaluate their relationship.
Together feels more like a more extreme version of the David Tennant-Michael Sheen series Staged than any of the previous Covid plays broadcast to viewers thus far. It is told through a succession of anecdote-filled dialogues and monologues, most of which are delivered directly to the camera.
Correct the name (9.30 pm, beginning on Thursday, September 15, Three)
Kara Rickard (Ngati Porou, Ngti Kata, Tainui) and Joe Daymond (Te ti Awa/Fijian) partner for this new series. They travel around Aotearoa and the world to understand the origin of our place names before asking whether it’s time for a change.
The book pledges to reveal our history’s good, bad, and ugly. Also, check out how Emilia Clarke Wraps up late-night filming in London.
Relatives (8.30 p.m. on September 18 in Whakata Mori)
This 2021 version of Patricia Grace’s 1992 novel of the same name will premiere on free-to-air television. A magnificent cast of indigenous performers of all ages portrays this quiet yet emotionally charged story of love and sorrow, identity and the institutions that attempt to suppress and modify it, and the power of what.
The narratives of Mata, Macarena, and Missy are intertwined in Cousins, just as they are in the book. Events bring and separate them, and each has its road to take and difficulties to overcome.
In four lives (9.35 pm, Sundays from September 18, TVNZ 1)
This three-part BBC true-crime drama about the 2014–15 deaths of four LGBT men at the hands of Stephen Port stars Stephen Merchant, Sheridan Smith, and Jaime Winstone (Merchant).
Police resisted treating the deaths as suspicious or connected for weeks. However, the victim’s loved ones stood firm in their pursuit of learning the truth about what transpired.
“Strong and compelling. The phrase “they made you weep and shout at the television at the sheer terrible injustice of it all” is critic-speak, according to Alison Rowat of The Herald.
