New to TVNZ OnDemand in May

Next month TVNZ OnDemand will launch Survive the 80s, a new local challenge adventure series.

The first two episodes will stream from May 28, and new episodes will be added weekly.

The series is produced by Ruckus Media, which Nigel Latta co-founded, and sees four teams of two Gen Y or Z-ers live through the 1980s without today’s tech.

According to the blurb, they will be “submerged in cheesy 80s pop-culture and mysterious technology as they live out every nostalgic 80s dream. Think 80s microwave cooking, 80s jazzercise classes, and even 80s makeover with perms and all. Retro, vibrant and oh-so feel-good, this truly is a show for all ages.”

Another local newcomer will be Snort: Live (May 21), a series of improv comedy shows filmed at Auckland’s Basement Theatre. Promises the publicity:

Loose, absurd and bitingly smart, the Snort cast take turns at accepting a random word from the audience to inspire an impromptu monologue. The cast of Snort includes a star-studded line-up of kick-ass NZ comedians and improvisers including Guy Montgomery, Laura Daniel, Eli Matthewson, Alice Snedden, Chris Parker, Tom Sainsbury, Brynley Stent, and Kura Forrester.

From the Vault will showcase “Kiwi Music Flashbacks” from May 1, watch for more Anika’s Naughty Shorties, and there will be fresh OUTtv content from May 15.

Foreign acquisitions will include S1 of Normal People, which now will stream from April 30, and:

  • My Life Is Murder S1 (May 1)
  • The Split S2 (May 14)
  • The 100 S7 (new episodes weekly from May 21)
  • The Sex Clinic S2 (May 28).

TVNZ OnDemand also will add from May 1 the documentary series North Korea – Voices From the Secret StateOriginal Copy, Smart Drugs and Sugar Sisters.

  1. Glad to see The 100 S7 starting soon.

  2. You and many others, I imagine, Paul. It’s a pretty good YA sci-fi show that’s flown under the radar for seven seasons. This will be its last.
