Colonial Combat has hit the screens

At the start of this year, Ruth and I cracked into production of the second series of Colonial Combat, a hugely ambitious project with Director Julian Arahanga at the helm. Having made Colonial Combat 1 was a good warm-up for the 4 week shoot over 4 locations. 

The series is a unique and imaginative take on our Colonial history with Māori, colonialists, wrestlers, a hugely diverse cast and some great local humour.
Aotearoa, 1836: Handsome Harold a Cockney fight promoter and shyster arrives in Kauri Bay with a wrestling ring and tent. This South Pacific port town is known for gambling, street brawls and a place to hide for those on the run.

Colonial Combat is an action-packed series that takes a laugh at our unofficial colonial history.
