Airdate: Flight of the Conchords


At long last TEN has scheduled HBO comedy Flight of the Conchords.

It will premiere at 10:10pm Sunday May 11, following Rove.

The cult comedy stars two New Zealand comedy-musicians trying to crack the big time in New York. The folk musos, Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement, have had a long success on the comedy circuit and their self-referential HBO series has garnered strong acclaim and industry nominations.

Each episode includes a musical segment where the characters break into song, narratively commenting on their plots -certainly making for one of the more unusual concepts on the box.

The support cast includes Arj Barker, Rhys Darby and Kristen Schall, who recently won a top prize at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Look forward to this one, gang!

  1. Finally. I’ve been waiting for Ten to get to this. Their self-titled album is great – hopefully the TV show lives up to the hype.

    Though I must say I’m not pleased with the timeslot. How’s a show supposed to find success at a time like that.
