The series follows New Zealand music-comedy duo Jermaine Clement and Bret McKenzie who play themselves as low-rent musicians trying to make it in America.
The show has been enjoying critical acclaim in the US for the irreverent manner which has won them audiences on the comedy circuit. They also break into song through each episode.
In the show, Australia is a nemesis for the boys, and there are several gags built around the NZ accent. One New York girl thinks ‘Bret’ is actually named ‘Brit.’
HBO has already ordered a second series.
The show premieres in NZ next week. No airdate here yet.
