Kiwi Mums and Dads Dating Show

Three will launch the NZ version of My Mum, Your Dad as the new lead-in to its latest local drama, Friends Like Her, from April 21 (it will stream from the same day on ThreeNow).

Here’s the media release:


Friday 5 April 2024 – Warner Bros. Discovery ANZ is excited to announce the brand-new New Zealand version of the groundbreaking international dating show My Mum, Your Dad will premiere on 21 April on ThreeNow and Three.

The Kiwi series follows single parents who’ve been nominated by their grown-up children to have another chance at love.

Warner Bros. Discovery Senior Director of Commissioning ANZ, Vicki Keogh says, “My Mum, Your Dad NZ is a heartfelt celebration of mature relationships and the special bond that exists between parent and child.

“It’s part of an evolution of reality television that prioritises heart and humour over drama and conflict.”

Mums and Dads from across New Zealand will come together at a romantic getaway where host Sharyn Casey will help guide them on their journey to a second chance at love.

But there’s a twist – unbeknownst to the parents, their kids will be watching their every move from a nearby location called ‘The Bunker’.

From humorous moments to heartwarming confessions, the kids will see their parents in a whole new light and viewers will witness the highs and lows, tears, love and laughter as these parents try to find love again.

Warner Bros. Discovery ANZ pays tribute to the late Flavio Fedrizzi, a participant in the series, who tragically passed away at the end of 2023. Vicki Keogh says the decision to air the show was made with the full and ongoing support of Flavio’s son Enzo, who also features in the series, his family, and the entire cast.

Enzo Tessadri says, “The show was super fun, not only for me but I know for my dad. He was very excited to see it go to air, as I have been, and I know the other participants feel the same.

“Dad said he loved meeting everyone and the crew and it was a unique experience for him. Most of all, we both loved doing it together.  And now dad has passed away, it is something I can keep forever.’

My Mum Your Dad NZ is an original format created by Hayley and Greg Daniels, it is distributed internationally by ITV Studios, and produced by Warner Bros. International Television Production. The format is now available in 10 territories.

    How/why did Flavio Fedrizzi pass away?

  2. I was shocked by this after watching it. He sadly passed away because of suicide. I saw a post from his friend on Instagram. Very sad, we should all check in on one another.
