NZ HD Dramas for Sunday Theatre

Antony Starr in Spies and Lies

At least two of the dramas scheduled for the new season of Sunday Theatre will screen in HD.

TV One resumes its premium drama slot from 8.30pm Sunday with the re-make of Bouquet of Barbed Wire.

It premiered last week in the UK — in HD and as a three-part, hour-long drama.

Unfortunately, we’re getting the edited telemovie version and it’s only in SD.

The good news is both of the NZ dramas scheduled for the slot, Spies and Lies and Nights in the Garden of Spain, will screen in HD.

The former is a South Pacific Pictures adaptation of a true story: how a Kiwi con man released from prison was given a new identity by the Government to foil a Nazi plot to take over the country.

It stars Outrageous Fortune’s Antony Starr and Antonia Prebble, Go Girls’ Nic Sampson and Ingrid Park, and Burying Brian’s Ian Mune.

Another Burying Brian star, Calvin Tutaeo, can be seen in Nights in the Gardens of Spain, a dramatisation of Witi Ihimaera’s novel about a man who is forced to reveal his lifelong secret that he is gay.

George Henare (Kaitangata Twitch), Vicky Haughton (Rude Awakenings) and Nathalie Boltt (Bloodlines) co-star.
